    I have a large white daisy type plant and its spreading at a rate of knots. I'm a newish gardener so don't know how to prune it back or reduce it in size. I would really appreciate some advice on this. The stems are about 1 mtr long with dark green spear type leaves. Any help please.

            Thank you for previous help. Been trying to work out how to upload a pic. Hmm all flower heads are opening now BUT they are all crawling with tiny black insects. Any idea what these are and if possible what to do about them

                I agree with you @Victoria, certainly looks like Leucanthemum to me too.

                  Black insects probably pollen beetles.

                    Yep Pollen beetles they are and won't do any damage.If you don't want them to spread next year when they come back into growth divide them and plant a clump elsewhere..:thumbsup:

                    Someone gave me a small clump last year and i had no idea they would spread so much lol. Right now they are crowding out a purple aster, a hosta and some crocosmia that were there before it. It grew along the ground heading for my lawn so i had to tie it up.
