Rudabeckia Green Wizard

i have a rudabeckia that came to nothing last year. But this year it's already looking bushy and lovely. I like this plant and want to know how to split, take cuttings or do I take seed. What is the best way to create an insurance policy or two??

    I grew mine from seed but I'm sure it could be divided

    Nothing to see this year, I think it may have died

    After it has finished flowering in the Autumn, you will see more little rossettes of leaves, little off shoots, cut down and put in pots in a cold greenhouse, they will make new plants ready for next spring

    I grew some another rudabeckia from seed last year. I thought they might have died but left some of the not so dead ones in the ground, and now there's a lot of new growth coming through

  • Thanks all. 

     

    Lyn, do you mean take cuttings or divide from root?? Sorry maybe just me being daft!!
