Mike, I wonder if you can just save them all. What
I mean is that instead of planting ALL of the freshly germinated seedlings, why
not just keep some in the pot (or pots) and transplant them in a year or
two. Of course they will not grow much due to their limited space, but if
keep watered and protected from too much heat or cold, they will survive. Then
as you throw out the undesirable seedlings simply replace them with the ones you
already have in a pot. Just a thought. I'm sure whatever you should
decide will work out. :-) Good luck, Mike.

In the past I had very poor germination. I had the pots sitting
on a cement wall. This year I sunk them in the ground. During the winter I had
nightmares that all would germinate ( around 2000 seeds). Well they almost
I do not have the space or energy to plant all of them. Which
ones do I save?
This is as bad as trashing seedlings that bloom.
Example of the germination in photo!
