I start my seedlings in pots so that I know where they are and don’t accidentally weed them out of the flower bed. This post is for gardeners who like to plant their seeds directly in the soil.
When you plant seeds of Echinacea Paradoxa (Yellow Coneflower), the first two leaves that appear are very round, then a single bladed leaf shoots straight up into the air. Really weird looking. Eventually, a second blade shoots up.
This is how much the same echinacea has grown in two months. Well, almost two months. Today is July 19th and the 23rd would be the full two months. Slow growing, if you ask me.
