Shasta Daisies are easy to grow and require minimal care. They prefer a sunny or partially shaded spot in a rich, moist, well-drained soil. Good drainage is very important, so add some sand or grit if you have particularly wet soil. Keep well watered during the summer months until established, allowing the soil to dry slightly between each watering. Apply a general purpose fertiliser in the spring, after the plants have begun to grow. Then, apply again every month or two throughout the season. Remove dead flowers to prolong flowering and in winter cut the flower stems back to the base of the plant. You can also divide and separate established plants. Separate them every three or four years, and they will reward you with bigger blooms. If you do not do this, the plants will begin to crowd each other out, competing for nutrients. As a result, both the plants and the blooms will be smaller.
