Dave & Trish, Thank you for another great podcast! Thumbs up

I love Echinacea purpurea flowers and had lots of them at our other house that originated from just two plants that I purchased many years ago. Our tenants moved out of that house last weekend and we no longer want to be landlords dealing with renters so we're going to put the house on the market ... but before doing so I want to check out what plants I can divide to bring some here. I'm going over later today to dig up a few Echinacea plants just to experiment and see how they might transplant. I'll probably leave some in small pots and also plant a couple in the ground ... and hopefully I'll also get some seeds from the garden before the house sells. Trish, I'm a big tea drinker and I need to get your recipe for Echinacea Tea!

Again, I really enjoyed the podcast,

Lin

Thanks Dave! Transplanting may be a waste of time, especially at this time of year but I'm going to give it a try anyway. Smiling
