Rudbeckia - Marmalade (Approx 80) in a hand sealed kraft envelope.
Rudbeckia Marmalade is a beautiful clump/ bush forming plant, that flowers vigorously with large subtle orange flowers. These are a beautiful variety that will bring a pop of colour to the forground of your border for the majority of the warmer months right into late autumn. The large 'landing pad' like center of each flower is perfect for nectar loving insects such as Bees and Butterflies. Protect the base of this plant from hard frosts and it will reward you with even more flowers each year.
To ensure the highest rate of germination and to account for the unpredictable British weather, grow these indoors on a warm sun soaked window cill or inside a greenhouse. Once the seedlings are large enough, you can then begin to plant these into pots. If the weather allows, you could also plant directly into your vegetable plot.
Keep well watered if planting indoors, but do not allow for the soil to become consistently soaked. This can cause mould, hinder root development and be detremental to the plants health.
