I would wait until next Spring when they will put on rapid growth.
I would, in fact I feed all year, although there is a view which says not to feed during summer.
There is also more pleasure being able to watch the birds all year on the feeders.
Agree they are harmless, probably fit somewhere useful in the food chain, which we will only discover when we wipe them all out.
Yes, Yes, Yes [said in a breathless When Harry met Sally way] 4 - 0, what a game.
I would leave them until next Spring when they should be big strong plants. It can be very tempting to pant out very small plugs, but you will lose many by doing this.
Agree with Berghill, if that tall probably a Helianthus.
In my garden they only seem to do well in beds that are fairly moist They seem to sulk in dry areas. Mine cope well with a little shade.
As Matt says for indoor display you need to buy prepared bulbs. These will be clearly marked at the GC. While you are there, can you buy me a few as well!
That looks to me as if you have put down too much in that area, which has now killed the grass. Wait until Autumn, and then you can reseed that area if the grass is dead.
I find a good bit of compost seems to work well.
