I've planted in a clump and in little rows within the pots.  Not  noticed any 
difference, but I wasn't looking for any at the time.  This  year's seed crop 
(from 2006) are planted both  ways.  Thirty Five 10 mum pots have 3 rows 
across the pot,  while the forty 8.5 inch pots are planted in central clumps.  
Mainly.   Not sure it will be a fair test since the diameter of the pots is also 
a  variable.  Height is the same.  In the rows, some touch but not as  many.  
The larger pots have approximately 50 seed each and I felt this was too  many 
to clump.  The 8.5 each have approximately 25 seed each.  
I might try some with Griff's method.  (picture in archives) It  would 
require a change in the method I use to fill  pots. Currently, I fill the pots to 
the top and then water them, letting  them settle before I plant.  Dig a trench 
or a hole and plant.  It's a  multi-purpose Tablespoon!
