The black-eyed Susan is a wildflower that can thrive in almost any soil condition. When transplanting, taking careful steps to provide extra nutrients and favorable conditions will ensure that the black-eyed Susan thrives in its new area. Transplant when the flower is dormant, such as in early spring or late fall, and allow time for the roots to become established. In some cases, black-eyed Susans will not bloom in the year after transplanting but will eventually return.
The best time to transplant black-eyed Susans is in the fall when the plant is dormant. This will allow the roots to become well-established in their new spot by the time spring arrives.
Black-eyed Susans will typically thrive in most soil conditions, but fertilizer can be beneficial to newly transplanted flowers.
You can add more fertilizer or mulch after transplanting your black-eyed Susan to provide more nutrients.
Transplanting black-eyed Susans while they are blooming can cause the flowers to wither away.
