How to grow:
If you plan to grow Coneflowers outdoors from seeds then they should be sown at a depth of 3mm either in autumn or early in Spring. Coneflowers should be grown in a sunny or lightly shaded area of the garden that has good drainage and a soil that has a pH between 5.5 and 7. If you first plan to grow seedlings of Echinacea species indoors first then they should be started off about 9 or 10 weeks before they are due to be planted out in early autumn or before the last frost of spring. It usually takes about two to three weeks for Coneflower seeds to germinate in the dark at a temperature of 21 to 24 degrees centigrade. Once ready for transplanted in the garden the Coneflower plants should be spaced at about 30cm (small) to 60cm (larger plants) apart.
