Starting a garden with full sun from noon on. I planted different types of black eyed susans (rudbeckia hirta, speciosa, fulgida) and all I have are some very little flowers on one. (one had been flowering when I bought it over a month ago). Something I should be doing?

You didn't mention how you prepared the soil prior to planting. It's best to work some organic matter into the soil so the roots of your plants can find moist, nutrient-rich places for their roots. Try feeding your new plants with a foliar fertilizer (such as Miracle Gro) to help jump start them. I'm sure they'll flower soon!
