Every May our association has a neighborhood garage sale. I would like to sale some daylily starts at the sale but sometimes the clumps are not completely up yet so its hard to tell just how much of a start i would be digging so i figure it would be easier to dig some now or at end of season so all i would have to do is set the pots out at the sale. What would you do?

Kevin - Can you pot the lilies up now and then sink the pots into the ground in the fall? That way they'd have insulation around their roots over winter. Add some tags or markers to the pots before they die back so that you can identify them next May.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we can't eat money. Cree proverb
