I bought two Trillium from Lowes the other day. I see now that there is quite a debate on whether they are nursery or stolen from the wild. Either way, they are in my care now and I'm responsible for them. They deserve the best.
I have to plant them in leaf mold. I'm not sure if that's what I have. Last year I started a compost pile that is mostly ground-up leaves with some rabbit and a little horse manure. The bottom of the pile is nice dark stuff but still has some identifiable leaf pieces in it. Can I plant them in this?
If they do well and I can divide them, I'll see if I can return some of them to the wild. It would seem only fair.
