    5 daisies?

    Hello,

    I sowed some daisy seed this spring, and they have germinated! But I have 2 questions.

    1. Before we see the blooms, can I call them "daisies" now?
    2. Can I say "there are 5 daisies in my flower pot", or do I need to say "5 daisy plants"?

    Thanks.

    In my opinion, you can call them daisies at any stage.

    Yes, but they are daisy shoots.

    You could also call them daisy seedlings.
