Known as ‘electric daisy’ and ‘buzz buttons’ for good reason – (carefully) nibble on a flower to find out why! Electric daisy lives up to its various electrifying names due to its tingle-creating isobutalymide alkamide content.

Sowing and growing:

Electric daisy seed requires warmth, light and moisture to germinate. The ideal temperature for germination is around 20-24°C, so keep an eye on the weather forecast and wait until you have a spell of warm weather ahead. Scatter seeds on the surface or your sowing tray or bed and tamp down well; do not cover with soil. Keep the soil moist (but not wet) and germination should take around 1-2 weeks.

You have three main options for growing electric daisies:
1. sow in a greenhouse or polytunnel and keep under glass/plastic all year.
2. sow in a greenhouse or polytunnel and transplant outdoors once the risk of frost has passed.
3. sow outdoors in early summer for a shorter flowering period in the garden.

Whichever option you choose, give the plant a rich, loamy soil to grow in and keep it well watered. Harvesting the flowers will encourage it to keep producing more and more. It will continue flowering until it decides it is too cold. If you grow it in a greenhouse it can continue flowering until well into the autumn.

Uses and benefits:

As well as being used for supporting immunity and reducing inflammation, electric daisy finds a special place as ‘The Toothache Plant’ and is a long-favoured acute pain-reliever for the discomfort of tooth and mouth pain. It is also a remarkable sialagogue – something that makes you salivate hence stimulating the appetite. The leaves are strong but the flowers are positively electric, leaving your mouth slightly numb- rather like licking the end of a square 9v battery.

Its effect on immunity is effective for sore throats and upper respiratory tract infections as well as gum infections where a small bolus of the leaf and flower can be held in the mouth over the infected part.
