    About the Echinacea Raspberry Truffle

    Care Instructions

    Echinacea prefer a well drained soil which is rich in organic matter. They also grow well in containers, but they do have to be fairly large containers at least 40cm across, to get the best results.
    Watering is straight forward, in the summer months they can be thirsty. It is best to keep the compost moist but not too wet.

    Position, sunlight and more

    Echinacea prefers full sun but can grow well in partial shade. The soil is best to be well-drained and have a good amount of organic matter.

    Height and Spread

    Raspberry Truffle will grow 50-60cm in height and will spread up to 45cm.

    Feeding, Pruning & more

    Feeding - Echinacea is not a plant that needs too much feeding, an application of slow release fertilizer or a mulch with manure in the spring is ideal. For further feeding in the year, a liquid fertiliser works very well. This is particularly the case if growing your plants in a container

    Pruning - this is not a plant that needs too much pruning at all. For best results and to encourage more blooms, deadheading is suggested, this is best done by cutting the dead flower stems off at the base of the plant.

    Propagation - The best way to propagate echinacea is from division. This is particularly the case with the more unusual varieties such as, this one which can not be grown from seed. The best time to divide the plants is in early spring or Autumn.

    Our pot & plant size explained

    At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

    We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

    Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

    Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

    Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
