I collected some daylily seeds, can you tell me how difficult it is to grow them?I regularly grow amaryllis seeds with great success.

Daylily seeds are just as easy to germinate - maybe even easier than amaryllis. Daylilies will take quite a while to mature before blooming. Just sow the seed in peaty soil, about 1/16" inch deep. The seed will take from 21 to 70 days to germinate at temperatures of 65F to 75F degrees. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy wet. Once the sprout appears, keep it in a brightly lit location at average household temperatures or plant it outdoors in your garden. Enjoy!
