I. omeiana affinis seedlings in my garden - pot them?
Frost killed my I. omeiana affinis. But I just found this morning 4 seedlings sprouted in my garden!
I have never grown anything from seed or seedling except for morning glory when I was 8 years old as school homework.
I would like them to survive and grow so am seeking an advice here. I am not sure leaving them outside in my backyard is a good thing but the only alternative I can think of is to pot them in a container with more nutritious soil since I do not have a green house or indoor growing equipment. I will put snail bait as soon as it stops raining.
Is potting them in a container better for the seedlings? If so, do you have pot soil recommendation? If the potting does not make difference, then shall I fertilize the soil near the seedling? If so, what type of fertilizer would you use?
I searched for this subject but could not find one that answers my question.
Thank you for reading my post and I greatly appreciate good advices I receives from this forum always.
