I bought a similar offer a few years ago, it's a difficult one. The plants when they get to you are so tiny. I think a potted mine on and kept them in a coldframe/mini sturdy greenhouse.
I love Echinaceas, but as little plants I find them very difficult to keep them alive and over winter. Once they've got a good root system under their belts, they are so strong. but the slugs do love them. Controversial but a few slug pellets around the base of the plants would really give them a head start
