Sowing, Seeds, Planting Surface sow the seed and press lightly into the soil. Seeds need light to germinate. Prick out each seedling as it becomes large enough to handle, grow on into a 9cm pot. Plant out in spring once hardened off. If you do not see any or very little germination expose the seeds to a fortnight of cooler conditions to break any dormancy cycle. Don't give up on them as spring temperatures will also help break the dormancy.
Care Tips Echinacea like bright positions in free draining soil. They also like to have their own space so don’t overcrowd them or force them to compete with other established plants, give them plenty of room to get settled.
Flowering July - September
Vase Life Last up to two weeks in the vase.

Very disappointed that these seeds have not germinated at all.
