How to grow Rudbeckia hirta Cherry Brandy from seed
Sow your rudbeckia seed in late winter to late spring. Rudbeckia hirta Cherry Brandy is a short-lived perennial or biennial but often grown as a half-hardy annual. The seeds are germinating the easiest in a more warm environment, for example indoors or in a greenhouse on a heat mat if the weather is still cold. If germination does not occur you can gold stratify the seeds at around 4°C for 4 weeks in the fridge or outdoors in February or March. Then bring the seeds into the warmth again and seedlings should emerge within a few days. Pot on to larger pots and plant out after the danger of frost has passed.
Seeds can also be sown directly where they are to flower, two weeks before the last expected frost until mid-May, but to give them a head start, sow indoors from mid-February to April. The seeds need light to germinate, don’t cover the seeds with soil.

Rudbeckias are excellent cut flowers, with flower preservatives they will last up to 10 days if picked when flowers are about to open. You might have to change the water frequently.
