I planted 6 mature Echinacea purpurea last summer. They have simply disappeared!! My garden is south facing, very dry with sandy soil, which I thought was perfect for this plant. Is it possible the slugs/snails have eaten the new shoots?? How can I protect these plants from snails? Can anyone help? I would like to try again. Pam3
