How to Plant Purple Coneflower Seeds
When To Plant
Coneflowers do best if planted directly outdoors in the Spring or Fall.
Where To Plant
Coneflowers only need soil that is ordinary and moist, but well drained. They also do well in full sun or partial shade.
How To Plant
The purple coneflower seeds should not be planted deeply; they just need to be compressed into the soil, as they need light to germinate.
If planting in rows, then plant the seeds 10” to 12” apart.
How To Care For Purple Coneflowers
These varieties of seeds generally germinate in about 14 days. You can thin the seedlings to 14” to 16” apart after they emerge.
Coneflowers should be watered regularly, but they can tolerate dry conditions. It is not necessary to fertilize them.
It generally takes about 60 to 90 days for Purple Coneflowers to bloom after the seed is planted.
