margarita standard

United Kingdom Gb

My daughter bought me what I believe is a margarita standard bush for mothers day. It has been a mass of white daisy like flowers all year but is now begining to die off(the leaves are browning). Will it come back next year and do I need to protect it from frosts as it is in a large pot. I live in the north of England. Thanking you in advance.



Marguerite daisy is probably what you mean - it won't survive the winter outside. If you want to try and keep it going, move indoors to a cool but frost free room, not in the dark, water only when essential (plant shows signs of wilting). Repot in Spring and increase watering ready to move outside again at the end of May.

Thanks for that. I will move it as soon as the weather gets cold.
