Hi glad you made it over from the other board.

Are you on a flood plain? Is it still damp in the summer?

Thanks wintersong, I am not enjoying the echinacea so I may as well move it. By the way heavy clay, but I quite like it now.

help to identify and how to grow more?

First I mix 50% grit and compost, then look around the edge of the plant for small shoots that you can peel off. Remove the bottom leaves and the tip. Put these around the edge of a pot (terracotta is better but not essential). Cover the the pot with a polythene bag. Make sure the shoots stay moist and check for roots after a month.

I struggled at first then suddenly they all started to root.

You can take the cuttings now.

Wallflower Bowles Mauve, a real good doer. I successfully took 20 cuttings last year with help from other posters

ChocolateCream teas

I managed to walk around the garden for 10 minutes today. I have an echinacea in the wrong place, just wondering if I could move it now, should be wet enough.
