New Rudbeckia and Echinacea plants query

Verdun  is correct, they probably wouldnt survive their first winter in the garden, I would never put mine out, build up a bigger plant then put them out in the Spring.

If you are not careful the echinacea will disappear overnight to the slugs. As soon as new shoots come through they will nip them off.

I have so much uncultivated spaces here, I probably have what they need to bread, I dont know what that is, but its probably here! If not its in the fields, the farmer is organic so we have huge margins of weeds around the edges.

Thank you everybody for all the kind words, I hope my mum will continue to gain strength, physical and mentally to come out. Its not like she has agrophobia,(is that the right word?) Maybe she is just not really strong enough for the outdide world. She knows her own body, not that she did when she stopped eating and drinking! 

I will continue to do all I can for both of them for as long as I can, and feel thankfull that we built this extension on their bungalow so I am right next door.

They took such great care of me, mum was only 18 when I was born, dad 22, they had no money but I never went without anything, not always new, but who cares about that.

I didnt say about mum before, someone else was going on about illness, it didnt seem right.

Fishy, you are a star, I hope you find real sollace in your garden, the ponds, I find are very therapeutic.
