Echinacea eventually potted up (Echinacea purpurea (Coneflower))

I decided to put the recently bought echinacea in an old pot I had. I’ve put lots of gravel/cobbles in the bottom, compost and then topped off with more little cobbles.I’ll see how it copes...

Nice Kate. What color are they? I'm still waiting for my little seedlings to pop up that I planted last summer. I hope they made it through winter.

Thanks Ange! I could have cleaned it up a bit better after potting up!
I hope yours starts to pop up soon 🤞

Thanks Paul, it’s hopefully - going by the label - a sort of deep/shocking pink!!!
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you too, that you see signs of shoots soon! 🤞

I can already see it in the leaves - the shocking pink. They are tough little plants.

I like that pot too Kate. The echinacea will look nice in it.
I have only partial success with these plants but I like them very much.

You're right, Paul. I just zoomed in again and you can see what hopefully will emerge.

Thank Klahanie, I hope it will grow and flower..I've read a few of you on here struggle with these plants. It's a real shame , they're just so "summer" aren't they!!!! Thanks for liking the pot, I'll have to clean it up better!
I hope your echinacea put on a good show for you this year 🤞
