PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm'|
|Black-eyed Susan, Coneflower, Gloriosa Daisy|
|This perennial Rudbeckia is a trouble-free plant that makes a stunning statement when planted en masse in the hot bed! The deep yellow flowers with black eyes stand on tall, wiry stems and are a very useful cut flower. Prefers full sun but will tolerte part shade.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow February-March, barely covering the seed with a little vermiculite or sifted compost (light is required for germination, which should take 2-3 weeks). Place in a propagator or sealed plastic bag at 68-77F/20-25C. Prick out seedlings into large modules or 3in pots and grow on under glass. Acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out when all danger of frost is past.|
