questions seedlings culling process
I have a bed of 1st yr blooming seedlings.....thinking about the culling process (have way too many).... have so many questions.
If they don't open good the first year, but have other redeeming qualities, can I expect a change in following years or are they likely to always be duds for me?
I understand that branching and bud count can and likely will improve in coming years, but if the buds are all at the top, will that likely be the same year after year? Can or does the branching habit change much?
Have alot of splotchiness, which maybe thrips, or can it be attributed to a first year seedling adjusting?
If the scapes are not able to hold the flowers up, due to wght is this something that may change over time?
As you can see, I have so many questions and have to get tough :-(.
Would love to hear about any insight you have.
