  • Lets talk about them



    Rudbeckia is the most perfect autumn palette. It's a tough reliable plant that starts flowering just as those summer days begin to shorten and those cool nights creep in. I love the velvet middle too - it reminds me of sweet dogs noses. 

  • How to make these beauties grow



    Sow: Autumn for overwintering, or mid spring 6-8 weeks before the last frost.


    How: Surface sow and cover lightly. If germination does not occur cold stratify (place in the fridge for 2-4 weeks). If autumn sown, allow mother nature to cold stratify for you.


    Space: 25-30cm


    Height: 60cm


    Days to Maturity: 100 days


    Where: Full Sun


    Pick: When 3/4 of the flowers are open. To get the required stem length you may need to sacrifice the smaller side buds.




  • Notes From The Garden



    Rudbeckia is in the same family as Echinacea - you can treat Rudbeckia as a perennial. 


    Staking maybe required.
