Question 1) I have a "patch" of western trillium growing in my front garden that is getting quite dense (several dozen flowering plants) and I would like to try and thin or move them (which could prove challenging). When is the best time to do so - spring, fall or winter? There are also a lot of small seedling but I should be able to carefully remove these. Question 2) If I am not mistaken the western trillium is protected but these have been with me since the early 70's and were started by one plant rescued from where a subdivision now stands in Coquitlam. If I wanted to find new "homes" for the seedlings - or mature plants - can I give away or sell them? If not, what can I do with them?
