Michele - Thank you! I bet in a few years, the soil in your raised daylily beds will be like gardener's gold, since you are amending it every year!
I used the following for my new winding border bed today: Pine fines, sand, cow manure compost, bagged soil, and 6-6-6 fertilizer. I added almost 50 young plants (all grown from seeds) in that border. They are all crosses I did last year and have been growing in a couple of containers to get them started growing this year. The hardest part is separating them all out of the long rectangular containers. Roots galore! I am always amazed at how healthy they look underground with their nice root systems. But a pain to separate. If I had the room, I'd grow them all in a baby wading pool in their own pots and just water them by adding water to the pool. I know someone that does that and it works great for her. My current method of growing the seedlings the first year makes the daylilies REALLY appreciate the stretching room when I put them in the ground. LOL! Sorta like my cooking tastes better when I make my family wait, longer than they expected, to eat.
