hi all,

this/next week I'll be receiving about 35 new DL's, so I'm clearing my borders from almost finished annuals and want to rearrange my borders Thumbs up

I thought that I had deadheaded all DL flowers: they are all newly planted and I want them to put all their energy in growing.
But when I pulled out the annuals I discovered 2 seedpods... Confused

Will the pods abort when I move the plants? Blinking


Thank You!

Not necessarily. Try to keep as much soil around the roots as possible when moving them. And keep them well watered afterwards. I've had a lot of aborted seeds this year, but I'm sure it's because we've had hotter weather than normal and I've found it harder to keep up on watering. My Daylilies have been too dry most of the time.

hi Joy,

Ok, than I'll just try it Thank You!
(I didn't plan to have seedpods, but now that I have them... Lovey dubby )

Over here we've had almost continuous rain for the last 4 days, and the temps have dropped to 17C... Thumbs down
So too hot or too dry wouldn't be a problem Hilarious!



Thank You!

Great! You'll have perfect conditions to ripen those seeds. Smiling
