Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

4 individual pots of #rudbeckia #marmalade #rudbeckiamarmalade #coneflower mulched. #advice Will these be ok outside over the winter or should I keep them in greenhouse/shed? 27/10/19

Mine are planted in a border so have been outside for three years but we are in Hampshire which doesn't get severe winters 🙂

I'll be brave and leave some out this winter then Elaine & Sue 😖 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom @lilybee

Just double checked on my variety and it's Goldsturm which is very hardy - H6 on RHS website. The one you have Alison is H3 which looks to be much less hardy according to the RHS website. @bluefox23 @sieveheadsarah

Thanks really pleased with them @kez001uk Although one pot (not in picture) has had several stems and leaves shrivel up and I don't know why! 🤷🏼‍♀️

Record of where I’ve planted some of my #rudbeckia #marmalade seedlings. NB plastic cutlery to stop animals digging up the pots. 22/06/19 #rudbeckiamarmalade #coneflower #grownfromseed

Have you tried citrus spray or pepper?

comment
bluefox23

I’ve tried pepper before. Since my neighbours cat died, I’ve only had a couple of cat 💩 from another cat in the garden but that was where I’d dig to create my new beds. So I thought I’d better be safe than sorry to protect these. @ublaszko

Ah yes, freshly dug ground is an invitation 😁 I wish people would train their cats to use a litterbox instead of neighbours' gardens (I wrote that while tearing up from wasabi peas 😂😂)
