How to Plant Black Eyed Susan Seeds

When To Plant

Black Eyed Susan seeds do best if planted directly outdoors in the Spring.

Where To Plant

The Black Eyed Susan only needs soil that is ordinary and moist, but well drained. They also do well in full sun or partial shade.

How To Plant

The seeds should not be planted deeply; they just need to be compressed into the soil, as they need light to germinate.

If planting in rows, then plant the seeds 6”-8” apart.

How To Care For Black Eyed Susan

These varieties of seeds generally germinate in about 21 days. You can thin the seedlings to 12” to 16” apart after they emerge.

Black Eyed Susan seeds should be watered regularly, but they can tolerate dry conditions. It is not necessary to fertilize them.

It generally takes about 60 to 90 days for Black Eyed Susan wildflowers to bloom after the seed is planted.
