Can anybody please tell me what's the problem with my rudbeckia goldsturm. Planted this spring from a garden centre. Well watered and in a sunny position. Photo attached , many thanks
The leaves look healthy enough Wendy but it seems to be having trouble flowering so it may not have established itself well enough yet. Try feeding it with a liquid feed (tomato feed is also good for flowering plants) but you may need to wait until next year when it should perform. Give the ground around it a sprinkling of fish, blood and bone fertilizer when it appears next spring to help it get going.
Many thanks Bob , does look healthy apart from the stems, will hope for the best ,many thanks again .
Looks like I`ll have to be patient , Many thanks ,Wendy .
