Hello everyone. I am new here but not to gardening. I am so lost. I have not had a garden or flowers since 2005 but now we have a home where I can and I have nothing. I live in Virginia in zone 7 and have not had any garden, flowers or plants in several years. I have the fever now, got to plant, need flowers, lol. I am not going to post anything because I have nothing to offer. My limited SSI income really hurts but I am hoping to learn a lot from all of you and maybe one day to able to trade. Right now I just want to say hello and get to know everyone.

Black Eyed Susan offer for your address

Hi. I wish you good luck in your garden! Rudbeckia Goldsturm (Black Eyed Susan) is a wonderful perennial plant for any large, sunny garden spot. Email me your address to laurasmccormick@yahoo.com and I would be happy to send you seeds and directions. It can spread two or three feet across by its third year if you don't remove the side shoots. I am zone 6 so that is close to your 7. I can send you photos if you need that to decide. Happy Gardening! Laura
