Echinaceas are easy-to-grow perennials that bear bright daisy blooms with striking, conical centres. They work particularly well in prairie-style planting schemes among billowing ornamental grasses.
Your February 2021 subscriber edition of BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine comes with a free pack of Echinacea ‘Large Flowered’, a pink variety that produces gorgeous flowers from early summer right through to autumn. Sow your seeds from February onwards and in summer your garden will be a magnet for pollinating bees, butterflies and moths. Then, later in the season, birds will feast on the abundant supply of seeds.
