Years ago I took some plants out of a 2 yr old bed and transplanted them into my dad's back yard in northern Mich. He moved about 11 yrs ago and transplanted some of those roots on a side hill (north facing) at his new home. I need to get some of this dirt and have it analyzed, because it obviously has the \"right stuff.\"
That was last year, we visited a little later in the summer this year and I noticed that the chipmunks or mice were getting the seed. My dad had failed to plant the seed last year, so we planted all these seeds in the vicinity.
