Flowering Months
Feed and water rudbeckia plants regularly. Deadhead faded rudbeckia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.
Pot up rudbeckia plants and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting outdoors later on. When plants are well-grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before planting them outdoors in sun or partial shade. Rudbeckia enjoys a fertile, preferably heavy soil that is rich in organic matter and well drained. Coneflowers resent drought and dislike soils that dry out in summer.

shame so many arrived dead! 2016-05-22

I received my 12 rudbeckia plug plants on Saturday, unfortunately 4 or 5 arrived dead and the rest are not looking too good. Not sure if any will make it to maturity which is a real shame!

Fab 2016-03-31

I grew these Rudbeckia hirta "Cherry Brandy" back in 2012 and I have to say they were FAB!!!! they came into flower from July all the way to 1st frost. They are excellent for filling in the borders and as cut flowers for the home last well over 2 weeks.

T&M replied on 2016-03-31: Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that you have been delighted with this item. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.

Autumn colour 2012-09-15

Started flowering about a week ago and they really are now coming into their own. Used for filling in gaps in my borders and I am very impressed. There are not two flowers exactly the same, but all of them are equally as nice. Really lovely and a great plug plant success rate.

sublime 2011-09-09

By Karen Sullivan 09-09-2011 Beautiful, eye-catching blooms from mid-July onwards and grown from seeds. Very robust and healthy despite the strong winds! Very impressive and exactly as seen in the t&m catalogue.

excellent 2011-08-30

beautiful flowers and loads of them, have grown into good sized plants and all who see them are impressed, also bought on special offer and never lost a single plant,top marks t&m

Good value 2011-08-05

Bought these on special offer and they were ready to pot on but very healthy. One or two were suffering from over crowding in the pot but I will still get over 40 plants out of the plugs supplied - thanks

Fantastic! 2011-07-24

I got these on special offer, they were healthy and ready for potting on. They soon filled the there new pots and were ready to be planted in the garden I didnt loose one! and had so many i had enough to share with family! Very pleased :-D They are now filling out nicely and budding up I cannot wait to see the sweeps of red flowers in my borders :-D.

SO SO 2011-05-07

Bought these on special offer too and only 7 out of the lot have taken. Wont be buying again!! Very poor.

Beautiful! 2011-04-09

I bought these from T&M they have just started flowering! A beautiful rich cherry coloured flower, non fragrant, gorgeous dark green foliage. Look great in borders or pots. Autumnal colour that looks fantastic against 'Rustic dwarf rudbeckia' or the taller 'Goldstrum' All budding or flowering right now (Early Sept) Highly recommended!
