Echinacea Planting Instructions:
Echinacea is relatively low-maintenance. It grows best in full sun, planted 1/2 inch deep and 1 to 2' apart. Plant outdoors when a light frost is still possible. Several times during the season, apply a quality flower fertilizer to encourage the development of big, beautiful blossoms. Use mulch to prevent weeds and to conserve ground moisture. Cut plants to the ground in late winter after the flowers have gone to seed.

Echinacea Harvesting Instructions:
On a regular basis, pinch off spent flowers or use them as cuttings in flower arrangements. Regularly harvesting buds will help extend the blooming period of the plant.
