Hi, I've seen you on here for a long time while I was just lurking. It's your handle that has caused me to write you at the moment. I had three very well established Frostweeds, but transplanted them to make way for a large rainwater collection tank. Now, the collection tank will be moved over farther, leaving that space empty. I absolutely love what little care they require from me.
In moving them, I'm seeing quite a few little sprouts coming up. I sure hope they aren't weeds. It's evident that they got too much water from the dissolving snow which leads me to believe that they are Frostweeds, but the leaves aren't truly old enough to confirm that yet. I did take some photos and would like to attach them to get your opinion.
And, herein likes the next step. I'm considering trying to plant a couple of barefooted Spicebush saplings in their place. I don't want to disturbed them. But, might not have much choice if I want to keep these seedlings going. I'm thinking that it might take a full year for them to have sprouted, being biennial. Would you PLMK what you think... provided that you can tell at this point. It might be too soon. I can barely see the edges pointing out on the photos that I've attached.
Lastly, this Fall, I put quite a few seeds into an ammo box that I've used in the past with my rain lily seeds. Since it's been only about 3 months or so. nothing has sprouted yet. I'm beginning to think that being biennial might mean that I won't see any seeds sprouting till next year. I can leave that ammo box alone, or go ahead and empty it for future sprouting future seeds.
Thanks for all your feedback.
