winter sowing, now what?
I tried winter sowing last year but messed up- don't ask. This year (humbled) I tried just 2 kinds of store bought seeds and 2 collected from the garden. I meant to do a little more but never got to it. So now the 2 store bought seeds are sprouted. They are poppies and foxglove. Of the collected ones my lavendar haven't sprouted and the other (Knautia macedonica?) is sparce enough I'm not worried. but the poppies and foxglove are so densely packed! I think I know I should pluck out some of the seedlings soon so they aren't overcrowded. But it's painful to sacrifice my little babies. Is there any way to split them or are they so tender I'll lose them all. And how long should I wait to do it? What do you all do with overcrowded seedlings? I suppose I could try and pot up the ones I pluck, but I doubt they'd have much success. I have 2 pots of each so I could try and separate one and thin the other so I don't lose them all. Thoughts and experience? -Ais.
