Shasta Daisies in Grass

Zone 95531 | Arielle Fuller added on February 12, 2017 | Answered

I bought a few packets of shasta daisies on a whim, and was wondering if I could plant them directly into the grass along a fence of mine, or if I would have to remove the grass first? The soil is good in the area and the grass is pretty sparse anyway.

If you cut out small holes from the grass, you could probably grow flowers temporarily in grass, but the grass will soon grown back and crowd them out. It's better to remove the grass first to allow your flowers to establish themselves properly and grow stronger.

Here's an alternative method that would allow you to kill grass in-place without ripping it up and plant flowers right on top:
