Planting Gerbera Daisies

When is the best time to plant Gerbera daisies that you buy in a pot? What does it mean when they talk about the crown? I have never grown flowers and I love the way the colors are on Gerbera daisies.

Gerbera daisies aren't frost hardy, so you should plant them outside once all chance of spring frost has passed.

The crown of a plant is the spot where the stems join the roots. It's important to plant Gerbera daisies with the crown above the soil - this means you should be able to see the spot where the stems connect to the plant aboveground. You can read all about that here:
