Pot up echinacea plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to transplant outdoors. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting out in borders. Grow echinacea plants in a sunny or semi shaded position on moist, well drained soil. Coneflowers prefer a deep, fertile soil and will benefit from the addition of some well rotted manure or garden compost to soil, prior to planting.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season until coneflower plants are fully established. Deadhead faded Echinacea flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. In autumn, cut back faded flower stems and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant. Divide overcrowded plants in autumn or spring.

worth the wait

These tiny plugs took quite a bit of nurturing, and protection from slugs once in the border, but in their second year they have grown really well, with lots of flowers from late July onwards.

Extremely small plugs

They look fine but extremely small plug. I have planted them straight in the garden since it is so warm. Hard to envision such small plugs will eventually become beautiful daisies; thus will wait and hope.
