Double golden blooms
Loved by pollinating insects
Out of Stock
Add a splash of sunshine gold to your borders with the bright blooms of Rudbeckia ‘Goldilocks’. Large double blooms bring a big impact to planting schemes, reaching their peak in late summer, when many other plants are running out of steam. These easy to grow perennials are perfect for cottage gardens and wildlife areas where they will attract pollinating insects to their nectar rich blooms. Height: 60-cm (24"). Spread: 40cm (16").

Start off in a seed tray indoors and plant out in borders. Fill a seed tray with good, free-draining, damp, seed compost. Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. Place the seed and tray in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at around 20-25C (68-77F) until the seeds germinate. This will take about 7-21 days. Don't exclude light as this helps germination.
When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm (3") pots or multi-cell trays. Before planting out, acclimatise the plants to cooler conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks. Plant out when all risk of frost has gone about 30cm (12") apart.
