I’m going to have to dig many of my seedlings after their maiden bloom this spring.  They are just too crowded.  Anything I don’t like has to go.  Merle Roberts says he gets rid of everything that doesn’t bloom the first year, because he has limited ground for them too.  I would like to give them all a chance to bloom at least once.  However, I’ve already eliminated a few that looked to weak to ever amount to anything.


This winter’s crop of seedlings isn’t nearly as crowded.  I have only about 50 percent germination.  Some of them will have room to grow nice clumps.

When I saw this mess, I immediately ripped it out of the ground and
tossed it.

Some of you have said never judge a seedling on its maiden bloom.
Should I have given this awful thing a second bloom season?
