Tips for growing Daylilies

One of the best bloomers in the summer garden is the Daylily. When all the other flowers are looking a little tired, this flower comes on strong and looks great. We caught up with Gail Austin the retired grower of these plants to learn about the rules for growing these successfully.

The first rule we learned was that there are NO rules. You can plant them at any time; you can dig and divide them at any time. If you do it in the heat of the summer you will need to water more, but other than that, they are very resilient.

Speaking of the heat; the bloom is slightly affected by the heat, but remember they only bloom for only one day! The next day there is a new bloom to great you. If you have questions for Gail you can contact her through her blog or watch for her open garden tours during the summer.
