There are about 60+ species of Coneflowers to chose from of which I’m as fascinated with all of them.  Many of the plants thought are patented so pretty costly, so slowly I get at least one plant at nurseries.

A good fine is to check the nurseries which sell these patent plants when there coming to end of season.  At times, the nurseries are just trying to turnover (get rid of) as many plants as they can for the fall stock and often forget to water these beauties.  Thus, left to dry and fall upon the clearance sections.  (woohoo)

For me that is the best time to pick up the plant, wilted or dead, these plants will bounce back in no time.  If caught early, I’ll put them in the shady section of the yard, cut off all the dead branches, but save the daisy (as I call them).

There full of seeds which you can use for future seasons and my way to expand in my garden.

To help me make a few dollars in the season I also buy some Jiffy Pots and place these seeds in my garage around February.  By using a grow light or even better a sunny spot in your home with southern exposure you can get these seeds to germinate and sprout.

Upon the last week of winter, move them outside and before Mother’s day you should be able to start your flower sale.  Because sharing is caring asking to sell these plants anywhere from $2.50 – $5.00 is still reasonable and under priced from the nursery.

Feel free to send me pics of the coneflowers and I’ll add more as I add to the collection.

Happy Planting.
