Hello,

A few years back, my mother and I planted what I believe to be a Stargazer Lily. The plant flowered and bloomed beautifully for a few years, until last-ish/ this year. When I came to inspect what was the problem with the plant, I found that it was very light brown and dry. But behind it, I found some little baby seedlings, about 6-8. The seedlings seem to be established, but are extremely close together (like you might expect of grass or a similar species). The babies are not anywhere close to blooming (as I believe) and I'd like to move them/ spread them out. How should I go about doing this? Is it possible for me to move the seedlings? Is there a way to do it without damaging the seedlings or should I wait till they mature?

Much Thanks,
- L

Welcome!

I would wait until they go dormant. Moving them now would disrupt the summer growing season when they are getting bigger, stronger and storing food for the winter.
