Hello

I planted some shop bought Echinacea seeds back in summer 2008, and they seemed to sprout and grew really well, they did not flower that year, but I think I remember the packet saying they will not flower until the next summer after planting.. Well last year they came up and did not flower, and this year they have come up again and no sign of any flowers yet, but it may be too early... Is this right or am I doing something very wrong...

Any advise gratefully received.

Echinacea is a perennial, so it won't flower the first year you grow it from seed. I suspect you just need to give it time....and don't forget everything is rather late this year after our long winter.
