Busy Yard Day

Category: Flowers and Vegetables | Posted: Mon Mar 12, 2007 9:49 pm

Well the daylilies are planted. We put two new rows between my Mom's driveway and our property line. There is a Bradford pear and two Japanese persimmon trees there and we planted on each side. We could have put them all there but one spot is really low and we didn't have the dirt to fill it in. So we will work on that and divide them next year to plant there. We also reworked a flower bed, took the overgrown canna's out and put my gladioli and the rest of the lilies. It already had daylilies and glads in it, plus a crinum, which I will move, some irises which I have already dug out, a dahlia, and a cardinal flower, which is a native plant. I put the canna's behind Mom's house which has a low spot, so I will see if Glenda's advice works. I am sure it will. Now I have to rake leaves after supper to mulch so my dirt doesn't wash away during the rain. There was 30+ clumps of daylilies, some with as many as 4 fans in them, I figure more than the 50 he said. There was one really different looking daylily so I planted it separate, along with some from another spot that was not doing well bc of lack of sun. I am very anxious to see what the different one will look like. I did save about 8 clumps to share with people who have been so generous with me in the past. All in all it has been a very satisfying day.

Wow, you are taking after Dooley. Be careful.
If your canna has its feet wet, it will be happy.

Oooh, I'm so jealous, I didn't get any gardening done today :(
Fingers crossed for tomorrow. *lol*

Jan, the canna was happy in a raised be, I'm sure it will be ecstatic in a wet place. If it gets to wild I will just mow it down.
When the daylily blooms I will somehow get a pic posted. It has very wide leaves, I told Richard, who noticed it first, that if I hadn't seen the roots I would have thought it was a leek.
Now I have 5 days to work before another day off. At least I have a little daylight in evenings now.

It will take a while to stop the wash but it will.You really worked your buns off.I didn't get much done between the showers .I planted lots of seeds and have lots soaking to plant in the morning.If it isn't pouring down rain.I did plant some Pink Tiger Lilies.
In my bulb bed.I can't wait for the unusua lily to bloom.
It sounds like the pregnant onion.They look like leek except the roots.

Do you have pics of all your daylilies posted somewhere for viewing? Would love to see them. I'm just starting my daylily garden. Does anyone else here have daylilies? Really nice blog.
Your hard work is paying off in more ways than one. Congrats!

I don't have an album of just daylilies set up, I posted some on the forums side of this site and I have some, but probably the same ones at another site. I have been meaning to do a daylily album, just haven't had time.
