|Growing Daylilies From Seed|
your daylily seed in late summer, early fall. The pods will be
fat with some browning. Collect your pods with their scapes and
labels. If the pod is not ripe enough, place the scape in water.
Inside the pod you will find black seeds. Watering extra during the growing season will allow for more, plump seeds.
Allow the seeds to air dry for a few days. Store them in the
container of your choice, paper or plastic in the fridge or other cool
spot. Take them out in late winter or spring when you are ready
the seeds in good mix of peat moss, vermiculite and perlite. Plant the
seeds 1/2 inch deep. Water, cover with plastic and place in a warm
spot. They will sprout in around 2 weeks. Put them in sun
or under lights and watch them grow.
Plant out your seedlings in spring and water at that time. Remember to label your babies!
