I am feeling really smug with myself as the Rudbeckia seeds that were sown on Monday are germinating already! I used a heated propagator for the first time and am amazed with the speed of germination. I have never grown Rudbeckia before but have admired them in other people's gardens. Can anyone tell me whether they are attractive to slugs? I try to grow plants that the slugs don't feast on as I hate using slug pellets and also hate seeing all my tender loving care for plants being eaten by those horrid slimy insects a day or so after spending time planting them.
