Where Can I Get a Barberton Daisy?

barberton-daisy-gebera-daisy

A lot of home gardeners are trying to grow gerbera daisies from seeds.  They are forced to keep buying these hybrid seeds because the flowers do not produce fertile seeds.  The reason is because the gerbera daisy is a man-made hybrid that can only exist in nature because of science.  I’ve recently discovered who the original parent to these hybrid gerbera daisies is – the Barberton Daisy.  This South African native is named after the city of Barberton.  The barberton daisy produces fertile seeds just like God intended.  And you know, it’s quite pretty.  The only problem is, how do you get a hold of a barberton daisy or its seeds if you don’t live in Africa?  Please post any responses on my blog.

  1. If you want I could send some seeds your way as soon as my plants have done flowering ? We live in real dark Africa, inside the Kruger Park. Plenty of Barberton Daisies around. Let me know what colours you want?

  2. I’m not selling the seeds… If the postage is a lot I will ask for help, otherwise it will be a pleasure to send someone a gift of nature from Africa!
