Rudbeckia - Rustic Dwarf Mixed

This is a cottage garden variety in shades of terracotta, mahogany, amber and gold, often banded with contrasting colours. This half-hardy perennial reaches the height of 60cm.

Sow indoors for surest results from February to April, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant them, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, from May to June, 30cm apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors for ease, from April to May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings as required. Water well until plants are established. Flowers from July to October.
