Echinacea


Echinacea

The wonderful thing about starting from scratch is we are almost randomly learning what works in this cool mountain climate and what doesn't. So gradually over many springtimes we will enjoy here, our garden will hopefully, slowly, start having lots of vibrant living life in it, rather than some fairly poorly looking sad droops. One which has absolutely thrived without much help was a small tube stock plant - Echinacea. I have a small dream of having various medicinal plants around the place to slowly work through their various benefits and the echnicea plant was a good obvious one to start with. Well! It took off and quickly. It's now well over a foot tall with the wonderful purple flower at the top. A & I have decided somewhere to make a little feature row or garden of these lovely herbs.
