Where and How
Plant daylilies in full sun. Ensure the soil has adequate
drainage. If needed ammend the soil with manure, peat moss etc.
Dig a hole, place your daylily in it, fanning out the roots. Cover the roots and water well.
The crown of the plant should be at the soils surface, too deep and it may not bloom.
Daylilies benefit from supplemental watering. They will likely bloom more, and longer when watered regularly.
Often gardeners share pieces from clumps that they have had for
years. Clumps may be overgrown and are not blooming well.
Gardeners may divide clumps if they simply want more of a particular
daylily around their garden.
All that is required is a sturdy garden fork or spade. Dig
completely around the clump until it lifts out of the ground. Trim the
foliage to six or eight inches. Knock the dirt off the root
ball. Pry the fans apart with your hands, knife, or garden
fork. Replant and water well at that time.
