How to grow your 'living' card - Living Fundraisers

Swan River Daisy

Each Christmas card includes paper embedded with Australian-native Swan River Daisy (Brachycome iberidifolia) seeds.

The Swan River Daisy is an annual plant that can grow throughout most regions of Australia.  It is a branching, low-lying plant that grows to around 30cm high and is spectacular in hanging baskets, pots or rockeries. It can tolerate a wide range of soils including sandy, saline or clay. Please protect from severe frosts or excessive humidity.

How to plant the paper

Soak the paper in water until soft. Place in a pot containing good quality potting mix and lightly cover with more potting mix. Swan River Daisy seeds germinate quickly (approximately 7 days) under warm conditions. Place the pot in a warm position and water regularly.
