: I was told to cut black eye susans back in Feb but was unsure how much to cut back?
You can cut them now or leave them up for the winter. The birds like the seeds, but if you leave them up for the winter they will self sow and you'll have lots more. To cut them back, just cut the stems to the ground leaving about an inch.
