So I take it you won't be replanting it again then greengage? I bought tree and shrub seeds online, wanted to try and grow something different and a bit more of a challenge, amorpha was one I chose, I thought I had researched it fully prior to ordering buy now I have read in numerous places that it is highly toxic.

We live slap bang in the middle of fields of pasture and grazing land and of course have the small child/dog/cat. The speed at which they germinated alarmed me somewhat, fast despite the dormancy issue and 4 weeks later they are over an inch high....

I would be concerned that if I grew even one of them and they were to self seed and the seeds are dispersed as nature does they will end up growing where they shouldn't...... I think these seedlings may be left to die.... Unless anyone wants them....
