Seeds of Echinacea, the Purple Coneflower, will germinate best when given a chilling (the refrigerator is fine) for 2-3 weeks. Take your seeds out of the refrigerator at the end of this period and put them in a warm place, like on top of the refrigerator, so they will sprout. They may take 10-21 days to sprout. Once sprouted, put them in a brightly lit area until they're ready to go into the garden.
