I had about a 4' x 3' section of green stalk-like plants come up in a section of my front yard. I do not remember planting seeds. Guesses were peppers, zucchini, etc. What emerged were pretty yellow flowers. A local nursery told me it was Evening Primrose. I have collected the seedpods, as they make a pretty view. Can I plant them now in other spots? I had a major infestation of slugs etc.that ruined all new grass we put down. Soil was turned and mixed with other soil but the spots died. Need help as it is in the front yard. New gardener, need help
