|I bought some daylily seeds this winter, and I have had them in the fridge since I recieved them. I was wondering if I could plant them straight outside, I meant to start them inside but just never got to it. Any ideas?? Kim|

If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

|I had good results starting seeds outside, in seed-starter trays, about two weeks before our last frost date. I kept them in our open wood frame and covered it with burlap during nights when temps were 37-40 degrees (I'd bring inside for frost-nights). Then, when overnight temps stabilized over 40 I transferred them to small pots, and finally put then in the ground at overnight 50 degrees. They are doing well in the ground now as the temps continue to warm. :}|

|I have had good luck straight sowing outside right into my seedling beds.I usually sow mine mid-april which is about 2-3 weeks prior to our frost date here. I have kitties so inside starting is impossible for me |
I believe Margo Reed and Jim Murphy of Woodhenge Gardens, straight sow most of their seedlings, so it is do-able.

|I also have good results sowing outside. I sow mine in pots in early May and then transplant in the ground in August.|

|I plant my seeds outside in the soil in November, but often times buy a few seeds on the auction later in the winter. Those seeds get planted out in April not long before the fall seeds usually begin germinating. At line-out time in June, you can't really tell them apart. Actually, my fall planted seeds are just starting to break through the ground in the last day or so. Always a fun sight to see !|

|Nature plants her seeds directly into the ground, so I would imagine we could do the same. |

I'm going to retire and live off of my savings. Not sure what I'll do that second week.
