Planting an Echinacea seedling. 3.8.17
Echinacea seedling at about 5 months. 3.8.17
I have several Echinacea seedlings growing in cut - off plastic milk cartons. I haven't found much guidance as to how well they do here in the wet Northwest. Plus, I read that rabbits like them. I planted this one in a vegetable garden bed today, as a test run. I'm tired of protecting things from rabbits, voles, and deer, so I left it unprotected to see what happens.
