That is my method exactly.  It’s so much easier to mark the keepers because there are so fewer of them.  I would like to give everything a chance to bloom twice, but I just don’t have the room.  With seedlings planted seven inches apart, I have to remove inferior ones to give growing room to those that look more promising.

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.
