Echinacea plugs

I got some free echinacea plugs from T&M with a few others perennials and dutifully potted them up. Mostly they are looking fine but the echinacea seem to have died back - is this normal?

    They die back in the ground during the winter-so yesimage

  • Phew, I was starting to feel really sad as they were my favourites from the collection. Thanks

  • I took the same offer and mine seem to disappear during the late summer- slugs maybe...

  • Oh dear, mine weren't eaten by slugs, they are in pots in a plastic baby greenhouse and I can still the the little stubs where the leaves used to start. Think mine have just gone down for winter. Not sure about yours...fingers crossed for spring.
