The reason I ask is because my neighbour bought a standard Marguerite and the wind snapped a stem off. I have picked all the tips off and planted them in my "nursery bed". Do you think they will grow?



It depends which Marguerites you are talking about, Sadie. The ones in trays or small pots at Garden Centres now are not fully hardy. I think they may be annual 'Argyranthemums' They are sold as bedding plants and do just about last into the colder weather in autumn, if you keep dead-heading. There are also hardy perennial Marguerites, called either 'Argyranthemums' or 'Leucanthemums' of different sorts and colours. I don't think your cuttings will grow, I'm afraid.
