is one strange spring all over. In response to the inquiries, all
I can say is that the daylilies are barely, if at all appearing.
They will be listed once an inventory has been done. There
is still snow in some places and in others the soil is cold.
If the season is not to late we will list varieties, time will tell.
The only lilies making an appearance so far are a couple of Martagons right against the house. Of course finding weeds is no problem!

bits of green are starting to show up in the garden. Most of the
daylilies are smart enough to stay behind their old foliage until
Spring is a sure thing. The peonies are poking their noses out of

daylilies has been relocated. Replanting was super quick with the
aid of a tractor and planter! We are looking forward to next year
when the trip out to the lilies is just a walk out into the hayfield!
Check back in 2012 when we will put up our spring list consisting mainly of daylilies.

lilies and daylilies to be moved to. The soil has been amended

we had our first frost, -4 degrees Celcius! Brr. Yesterday
I went out and collected all the seed pods from crosses I made
throughout the year. Some stems are in water to continue
ripening and others are drying.

of Lethbridge, Alberta....you sure can grow daylilies! I was
just out visiting family in Alberta and was amazed at the daylily
clumps. Beautiful daylilies in several colours, as many as 15
blooms on a plant! The best recipe for growing daylilies is full sun
and plenty of water. I think those gardeners have it

a plant that is green and growing at the beginning of May? Try
shade-loving Martagon lilies. In the spring garden they are already a
foot tall. Martagons are early blooming lilies and thus are up
early and grow quickly. Martagon bulbs are available for fall
planting. We grow many varieties including Peek's Pink and Mrs
Peek's Pink Flowers
