I have never cut this Bush daisy back. Have only cleaned off dead flowers and leaves. It has gotten quite tall and leggy. Just wonder if it could be cut way back and allowed to Bush up more and grow more flowers?
Yes, most plants benefit from shearing after flowering. It encourages new growth and more flowers.
Hello. What does a bush daisy seed look like? i got some seeds from my bush daisy plant in my garden that has been there for a few years. The seeds were very brown and dried on the plant when I collected them. I planted them just a few days later. It has been two weeks since I planted them in pots on my shaded porch. I water them a little every day I live in Orlando. When do you think the seeds will germinate? Thank you
It probably depends upon how warm your soil was when they were planted. If you didn't plant them too deeply, you should see them popping up soon. Here's an article that may help:

In your area, you can prune, safely, at just about any time. Just be sure not to take more than 1/3 of the plant at once.

I have two margarita daisy bushes which were originally like Pom poms on sticks. They have been a bit damaged and have lots of straggly gaps. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to prune the bush into a ball shape again, or would this damage the plant? Thanks!
Being short lived, they do benefit from constant deadheading. I don't see it being an issue to prune it up some. Here is an article for more information:
