You will get around half a gram of seeds, which equates to about 1000 or so seeds.
Sowing Ox-eye Daisy seeds
Simply scatter the seeds onto bare, weed-free soil in a sunny part of the garden, press them into the soil and water. Or sow the seeds onto pots of compost , press in and water. Place the pots somewhere light to germinate and when the seedlings are big enough to handle, transplant them to individual pots to grow on until big enough to plant in the garden.
