    • Thanks Andrea, my garden is on the banner at the top of my wordpress site, it looks easier than it actually is, we are east facing, sandy soil, frost pocket and high water table. We removed the conifer windbreak when we moved here because we liked the view over fields behind and I wanted more light in my veg garden. I grow these cheery Rudbeckias in less than ideal conditions and they return every year, spreading and blooming without a fuss.I work as a gardener too, so when I come home and they greet me with undemanding smiling faces, its a lovely sight. 🙂

    • My Mum grows the annual Rudbeckia ‘Irish Eyes’, on chalky soil which has a green centre, thats a good one. I tried ‘Rustic Dwarf” and ‘Goldilocks’ this year on free draining sandy soil both of which I recommend, but mixed up the plants during the course of bringing them on, so not certain which is which, all three are lovely and thrived with not a great deal of additional water.
