What do you do about late bloomers in a bed like that.   Do you just dig and destroy, or do you mark them and leave them till next year?

My new seedlings usually have a full bed to themselves. I find it
easier to mark, and then lift, the KEEPERS. Then I dig or destroy the
remainder. Takes a lot less marking materials. In one 4 X 50 foot bed
I will lift 8 clumps and the rest are gone.

I'm finding some good seedlings make their showing on the 2nd year of
bloom. Maiden bloom can be quite deceiving.

Ribbons are a great idea....bet they will go far with as little as you
have to use to mark each one.

I used to hate throwing out seedlings..........even though I knew they
were useless to me and I should use the space for something worthy or
my favorites introduced by others.  I got relieved of the anguish when
my gardening neighbor begged to have my throw aways.  I had shared may
flowers from my gardens with her, since she is on a fixed income and
can't afford much buying of such things..............so, what a nice
deal.  She gets new flowers....and she loves them all..........and I
get spared having to trash anything...LOL! 

Life is just working itself out! :)

Have a great day all

I went to buy those bright colored flags on a wire to mark my rejected
seedlings. The price was high. I bought a 200 foot roll of plastic tape
to tie around stalks. $1.99 I let most of the rejects finish blooming
before digging.
