Info: The Black Eyed Susan Mix is a beautiful climbing plant with bright yellow to orange-red flowers with a black centre (eye). With a climbing aid it can reach heights of up to 2 metres. It is excellent for flower boxes and hanging baskets, but can also be used as a ground cover.
Sowing & care: Sowing starts in March under glass, the seeds are placed approx. 0.5-1 cm deep in nutrient-rich growing soil. The black-eyed Susan prefers a sunny to semi-shady, wind-protected location and a well drained and nutrient-rich soil. Regular watering in summer is important. Fertilize every 4-6 weeks.
