Shasta Daisy

As soon as my Shasta daisies bloom, the petals open up curled; they almost look like they are wilted, but we’ve had a lot of rain, so I really don’t think that is the problem. There are plenty of blooms and dozens that are getting ready to open, but they are all opening the same way. Any idea what the issue might be?

This is probably caused by Aphids on your plants.

You can treat the plants and flowers with Neem Oil.

Neem Oil is organic and safe for people, pets and Bees.

Here is a link with more information.

Thanks for the suggestion on the neem oil; I’ll give it a shot. Do you recommend getting the concentrate or ready to spray? If I need to mix it, what’s the best way to do that and apply it? I’ve read about a lot of different products and I’m pretty confused at this point! Thanks in advance 🙂
