Protect Perennial Seedlings Over Winter
I have been provided with some small Echinacea and Agapanthus seedlings from a local garden nursery. They are small and I guess they were the wrong size at this time of year for the nursery to keep.
As far as I can see the Echinacea has some roots about three inches long, but not much in the way of leaves (about three inches high), or no leaves as such.
The Agapanthus looks like they have recently germinated and are about i inch high although not much in the way of roots.
I live in East Anglia and have presumed they will not stand a chance outside over winter and have placed them on a windowsill.
Is my presumption correct and what is the best way to try and keep these alive until next year when I hopefully will have plants i can plant out. I am reluctant to give up on them
