 o
multi-pelleted seed

I bought "multi-pelleted" lobelia seed which is supposed to have a few seeds per pellet. Will I have to thin out seedlings or can they be allowed to grow together assuming more than one seed sprouts from a given pellet? I'd imagine thinning would be a pita given that the seeds will be locked so closely together.

Thanks.

I've done it both ways - snip thinned with the scissors and just let the clump grow. Either way works, it all just depends on the "look" you are after. We like it in hanging baskets so individual plants don't work all that well.

For future reference if the small clumps of lob appeal to you you can just buy the plain seed (cheaper) and plant it that way.
