not the new ones,ive seen them and they look great!i leave mine to die down on their own,then cut them down,they always come back great the next year.are they in pots or in the ground?
I'm growing bravado and managed to force 3 plants without using stratification (this is my 1st year of growing ANY plant and I'm not sure if this an old or new variety) But they are doing well in a pot and I am hoping for lovely flowers next year. Can anyone recommend this variety that I am growing?
hiya mattbeer87. don't know of bravado. You can grow echinaceas from seed...you get loads of plants with different colours. if you are new to plants do you know what sort of soil you have, etc. is it a warm garden, do you get much frost, is it sunny, etc. find out what you have and find out what plants will suit your conditions.
Well I have a massive list of plants that I have grown this year and I'd say 95% have been very successful.
My garden is South facing so we get sunlight all day long.
My soil is slightly acidic (so says the PH tester) but all plants seem to thrive in it.
Being near the coast (probably less than 10 miles as the crow flies we don't get a lot of frosts ( We are in Hardiness Zone 9 so it's very rare we get exreme cold temperatures)
Sweet Peas/ Cosmos/ Godetia/ Stocks/ Nasturtium/ Morning Glory are just a few that I have grown Successfully. I'll be a bit more adventurous next year with planning ( They just went anywhere this year )
Bravado is a purple kind by the way
I'm still a bit iffy when it comes to perrenials but I'm getting there, Trying to find stuff that would mix well in with the annuals that I like to grow. I guess trying in pots first is a good thing. Gardening takes years to fully understand so I'm just gonna go with the flow.
