My husband does all the planting; he amends our soil with Miracle-Gro garden soil, and he puts a handful of Osmocote in the bottom of the hole, then fills it in. Then mulch goes on, and that's it. He also uses liquid Miracle-Gro as fertilizer, he just did that a few days ago. Usually, the plants are fertilized earlier, but our excessive rainfall prevented that this year. He may fertilize one more time, just depends on the weather. In case of a drought situation, the plants still get plenty of water because we have two wells we can use. However the plants do better with the water from the sky. Here are a few more pictures:

Beautiful Avedon, Flowersgalore and Larry. I also use the MG garden soil with compost and sometimes I throw in a few handful of potting soil depending on the soil consistency. Mix in a varied combo of Milorganite, Alfalfa pellets, Meal and
Osmocote or similiar to Osmocote fertilizer. I usually buy the soil in the spring when you can get five bags for ten dollars. Otherwise it is around four fifty each around here anyway.

I just can not believe anyone has so many daylily clumps in their garden. These clumps shots are what I dream of. So few of mine get to that stage though. And it has only been a rare few seedlings to do that so far.

Here is one of my seedlings, that has siblings doing the same multiplying this year. (I say "this year" because next year could be totally different.) And the foliage is rust resistant as you can see. Beautiful green clumps. I know most of you take for granted such lush plants, but here where I live, it is rare. Very rare. And that is probably why I never see daylilies for sale anywhere in this part of the state (Florida).

I know it must be the heat. I water mine every couple of days, so they get moisture, but the heat here is not fit for humans much less plants. Seriously, if you don't have A/C in your home, you would probably die of a heat stroke. The last couple of days it has rained, so the humidity is also very high. You feel like you are suffocating when outside for too long. It is miserable. Sticking tongue out

This is one of my 2 year old seedlings - TTT28 (Which is featured in an older thread I started a year ago.)

This seedling does not produce a lot of buds per scape, but this is the first round of re-blooms. So I know that it does rebloom at least once, with the possibility of additional re-blooming.

The blooms are so odd shaped, that they catch your eye. And the color pattern also draws your attention.
