i have recently bought a gazania that has no tag in the pot. it has silver leaves and pink flowers with a geen centre with petals that curl in on themselves. the leaves have started to become dry and i would like advice on its name and how to care for it many thanks

On plant Gazania



I'm confused - Gazania is a tender bedding plant for outdoors during the summer, it's frost sensitive so dies over winter. If you've bought one, presumably you've either got it in a greenhouse or are keeping it as a houseplant. It won't like direct heat, so move it away from a radiator or other heat source, keep it well watered. It does like very bright light and sunshine, but it might be that sunshine through glass means its too hot on sunny days, I don't know. The flowers close up out of the sun.
