* Annual rudbeckias are ideal for pot culture.
On fine autumn days they will add a special shine to the sunny terrace, especially when most of the summer flowers have already faded, and on cloudy bad weather they will illuminate it with sunny bunnies as a greeting to the bygone summer.
In June, plant the seedlings in a permanent place. The distance between plants in the ground is about 30 cm; in a pot, depending on its size, place from three to five plants, but remember that over time, hairy rudbeckia forms a dense, wide bush.
The soil, as for all rudbeckias, should be quite light and nutritious. Do not forget to regularly water the plants in pots, and in the summer heat do not leave the pots in the sun.
Remove faded heads, leaving only one or two of them for seeds.
This rudbeckia does not tolerate frost well, so if there is a danger of frost, it is better to bring the pots indoors - this way you will prolong the flowering of this wonderful plant until late autumn.
Although rudbeckias can grow in any soil, still try to prepare suitable loose and nutritious soil for them by adding mature compost to the planting - a bucket per square meter. Add sand to clay soil to improve the structure. The soil under the plantings should not dry out, so in dry years, water the plants regularly.
Rudbeckias grow well in the sun, although they tolerate light shade. In the spring, before growth begins, feed the plants with a mixture of mineral fertilizers: 20 g per 1 m2.
It is advisable to mulch the soil under plantings with humus. At the beginning of flowering, the plants can be fed again with phosphorus-potassium fertilizer, which stimulates the formation of buds.
