seedling spacing

It's nice to have the seedlings grow well.  In fact, considering that these 
were knocked down to ground level after a major hail storm, these look 
darned good.  However, I foresee problems.  The obvious one is they are too 
crowded.  Spacing them 8-10 inches apart looks fine when they are 1-2 inches 
tall, but good growth and anywhere from 2-6 increases and more increase 
showing up every week uses that space rapidly.  How far do some of you other 
folks space seedlings?

The other problem is they have grown well enough that most of them will 
bloom next spring.  They are primed to get the bud stalks frozen by the 
almost inevitable late freeze.  Once again.  My experience is that seedlings 
will bloom the first time earlier in the season than they will in subsequent 
seasons.  Not quite sure why.  I'm not going to like that.
