The second has dropseed on the left and is third year clumps.
Last picture is some I started by wintersowing in milk jugs. The seed came in sparse but filled in quickly. I took 4 plugs from each jug. This year I have 8 jugs planted.
Gloria,

I'm growing Dropseed from seed this season. My question is, how many seedlings did you use per plug? I don't mind waiting four years for the end results. But I'm looking for the classic cascading mound look, and not a bunched mess by possibly combining too many seedlings per plug.

Thanks!
