How to grow Rudbeckia hirta from seed
Sow your rudbeckia seed in late winter to early spring. Rudbeckia hirta 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 it is still cold.
Seeds can also be sown directly where they are to flower, two weeks before the last expected frost, but to give them a head start, sow indoors from mid-February to early April, about six to eight weeks later you can plant the seedlings out in the garden. The seeds need light to germinate, don’t cover the seeds with soil. Young plants can handle a light frost but need to be hardened off first.

Keep in mind it takes 100 to 120 days before the plants start to flower, do not start seeds too late in the season.
