Yes, you will need to wire them, pretty much regardless of how you use them.  Their heads are so heavy!

I agree with Lindsay12.31.2010. Their heads are so heavy that if they’re not wired, they will droop. Some florists provide them already wired. Maybe you could look into that?

@JenniMichele: Yes – you can always so request these little things…I can’t remember what they are called, but you slide them up the stem of the gerber, and it is a plastic thing.  They are easier than wiring, but more expensive.  Depends on whether or not you are going the DIY route.

How to wire a gerbera daisy:

1. Using 18-20 gauge wire, poke through the head of the daisy from the bottom, right next to the stem

2. Thread the wire through the flower about 2 inches and bend the top 1/2 inch or so into a small hook

3. Gently pull the hooked end back into the center of the flower

4. Tape the wire to the stem using floral tape (floral tape is a stretchy tape that sticks to itself when pulled tight. You can buy this at michaels and some walmarts)

Thats it! Super easy to do 🙂 Let me know if you have any questions
