last year I bought my first echinacea as small plugs and brought them on and planted them out at the end of the summer. They did well. It's all about getting a strong root system i understand From verdun ( I think it was him advising me).
I have lots of forget me nots in the garden and where the echinacea are planted is now full of them. Should I be thinning out the forget me nots so they don't smother the echinacea or will they push through in the spring.
I do love forget me nots as a space filler so like having some there but the echinacea are a bit of a labour of love so don't want to kill them off.
This is what the area currently looks like.
Many advice gratefully received. Thank you. X
