I wanted to move daylily clumps in my backyard to expand my veggie garden space. So I decided to create a new daylily garden bed in my front yard using the clumps for an instant effect.
First I cut back the foliage and cleaned up the clumps in the area to be moved.
Backyard daylilies to be moved.
Cleaned up and cut back daylily clumps.
Then I moved into the front yard and started digging out plants from the new area. I tossed the Azalea and most of the roses that were doing poorly here. I did save a few of them and replanted them in other rose beds.
Area to be turned into new daylily bed.
Making my instant daylily garden was fairly easy after everything was cleared out. I simply dug clumps from the backyard and lined them up in the new bed. I just set them where I wanted to plant them. Once I had all the clumps dug and moved, I made sure I had everything spaced correctly. Then I just started planting.
Afterward I mulched with straw to give the area a finished look and watered well.
This is what it looked like after I was finished.
Here you can see the finished area in a view from farther away, taken from my front porch. I am looking forward to this daylily bed blooming this summer.
