: : : 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.
: : Newt Hi I cut my black eye susans back but I do not see any new growth now. Are the leaves supposed to sprout now?
What zone are you in? I'm in zone 7 and the leaves of mine are sprouted and about 2" tall.
