So Spring is here and I'm seeing signs of life from some shrubs but alas I can't see any growth from my Japanese Anemone or Echinacea or Rudbeckia.. I bought these end of summer last year from local garden centre. Is it too early to see signs of life or has the cold wet winter killed them off?I'm in North of England.

    My echinacea has only just started coming through. I have a south facing garden in the south of England so i suspect yours may come through a little later. No sign of my rudbeckia yet either, its been reliable for a couple of years so again, give yours a bit more time.

    Hi Debs
    All those plants are late flowering perennials so still in their winter slumber imo 
    I have all these plants in my south facing garden. Echinacea are just starting to show some signs but nothing to shout about. Rudbeckia and Anemone normally mid April 
    We’ve had a real wet spring so ground in only just drying out and warming up so everything seems to be dragging their perennial feet at moment

    Here in south Lincs (sunny plot) I have tiny new growth on echinacea, and on Japanese anemones...
