Q.How to support blooms and when should I transplant it to a larger pot

Zone Clee Hill, Ludlow, Shropshire | Anonymous added on August 6, 2020 | Answered

I had a gerbera from my grandchildren but am unsure how to best care for it. It had 4 blooms which in time died so I deadheaded the plant. Now I have another 6 blooms, some of which are quite tall and sturdy but some have very slim stems and aren’t very strong. The leaves keep multiplying and are crowding out the blooms. Should I cut back some of the leaves to make more room for the blooms ? Also,can I do anything to support the weaker blooms please ?

Gerbera daisies need to be fertilized regularly or they will stop blooming. Use a balanced controlled release such as 10-10-10 for convenience. I can attest to this. If mine stop blooming, I add a little fertilizer, and they start right up again.
You don't need to remove any leaves; the flower stems will shoot straight up.
