How to take care of Echinacea purpurea
Echinacea purpurea is a short-lived perennial which thrives in any reasonable garden soil, in a sunny, sheltered spot. Echinacea purpurea will tolerate dry and warm climates but do not allow Echinacea purpurea to dry out. Stake the stems for support when necessary. Remove dead flower heads to stimulate new growth. Cut Echinacea purpurea down to ground level in late autumn and apply a light mulch of well-composted chicken manure or leaf mould. If supplied as bare roots: Please soak the bare roots for 12-18 hours (do not exceed 24 hours). This allows them to take up the maximum amount of water without doing any injury to the plant.
High nitrogen fertilizer is not recommended, especially when growing Echinacea for root harvest, it can result in a weakened root system. Please soak the bare roots for 12-18 hours (do not exceed 24 hours). This allows them to take up the maximum amount of water without doing any injury to the plant.
