I would never have thought of this. I love the fact that you don't need any supplies and you can't hardly see your fix.

I agree Hurray! I tip my hat to you.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Wonderful tip! I have daylilies along the west side of my house so of course the tallest scapes lean way out. I'll tie them back like this next year!

What a neat idea! I, too, would have NEVER thought of doing this! I will certainly try it in the Spring when the flowers start blooming! Thanks so much!

That's what I really like about it , natural and unless you are looking for it it doesn't show. I'm really overwhelmed with the response *Blush* ...I've been tying them like this for years, saves me a lot of trips up the hill to the potting shed.... Thanks everyone!

crittergarden - Mine start blooming in early April and continue until the end of July. And many bloom twice and rare ones will bloom three times. I wish I could get them to bloom in the Fall. I happen to live in Florida, so don't know if I could possibly get them to bloom year round? But I guess they need a dormant period at some point.
