Sure adds vibrancy to the statement " when it rains it pours".....

That's terrible! Is there some way you could put something over that area to have most of it run off and away from them? I guess that's where I would be out with my 8' umbrellas -- unless there was too much wind... it's always something, isn't it?

I just have to hang around this forum more often. What absolutely beautiful daylilies! Fred, you are really to be commended for those gorgeous crosses!

Nothing like daylilies looked when I was a kid.

Fred -- just saw this thread -- so hope all of the daylilys make it through the TS! That is a ton of rain!
Also those eyes and cristate forms are amazing!
If something happens and you lose any Daylilys that I ordered, feel free to throw any of those above in my box!! Hurray! Hurray!

Had the computer unplugged most of the day yesterday, plus I had 80 daylilies to clean so I could ship this morning. Yesterday was the worse day of the storm when it turned west towards us, we had less rain yesterday but more wind than the first two days. We ended up with 101/2 inches and one tornado about a mile from us which destroyed one home and damaged several others, no injuries that I have heard of. We lost power for several hours but no damage other than limbs all over the yard. The wind also tore up the foliage on the daylilies so the ones I ship today will not look the best but have plenty roots to recover.
I don't think I lost any seedlings from what I can see at a distant, the beds are too wet for me to get a close up look, they should be much drier today, no rain last night. I have one week to get the last ones planted, they have been in the trays one month today. Will build the last bed when the ground gets dry enough. Timeing is everything if I want to see them bloom next year.

Betty I did put me a barrier of 2X10s on the high end and this deverted a lot of the water around them, if not for that I would have lost a lot with this much rain.

Oh, Fred, that is good news. Thankful you did not have anymore damage than you did. And that the tornado stayed down the road from you!

80 daylilies to clean in one day during a major weather event! Whew!

Fred, I'm so glad to hear you had no damage and that the babies came through ok. I'm driving out later today to check on mine. The babies are still in the trays so I didn't have to worry about them washing away. The ex looked at everything over the weekend and said things looked ok. I'm not sure how many inches of rain we got, but the daylilies sure needed it.

So I checked on the daylilies today. They faired ok; a little ratty foliage, but good otherwise. Now the babies are another story. They were still in the seed trays, however, a lot of the seeds that hasn't germinated yet or were just starting to were washed out along with half of the potting mix in the holes. There are seeds all over the ground or 5-6 in some other hole. The babies that has leaves that were almost washed out I covered back up with potting mix. The seeds that were washed out I just left on the ground. I'm not even going to attempt to pick them all up. I wouldn't have a clue as to what they were anyway now. I didn't have my notebook with me to see what the crosses were; I hope they weren't some I was really looking forward to seeing bloom. I had 1872 planted and I'm not sure how many washed out. I'll just chalk it up as a lesson learned. Next year the seed trays will be at my place until it's time to plant. That way I can cover them up if there's a bad storm.

Michele, I'm so sorry you had that disaster with your seeds due to the storm. Hopefully you'll still have a great batch of seedlings blooming next spring, and you're right -- all you can do is learn from this experience. But I know how frustrating that must be for you -- and you have my total sympathy!

Good to hear from you Lady, the seeds that sprout on the ground can be planted as unknowns, I have some of them every year. I wish I would have told you to cover the seed when you planted them, it just never crossed my mind. Mine stay cover until I put them in the ground, I put a top on those racks several years after the same thing happened to me. Got the daylilies shipped so you guys keep a look out.

This morning I moved a few one year olds and re-fertilized the ones I moved before the storm because the water in the boxes had run over the top and washed it out. The ones I moved today were UFs, and were moved not for there beauty but they set seed. I also moved two I have never seen bloom because they are from Tet Lillian's Womans Touch which has now reverted back to a dip.

This is Sitting on (A Cloud x Tet Lillian's Thin Ice) This should be a good parent for Tet whites. LTI has now reverted back to a dip, I will have a full conversion this fall, Jane Trimmer has been useing it for a couple of years and has some good seedlings from it.

Wow, that must be so frustrating to have your converted dips revert back again! But you just seem to take these things in stride and try again! My role model!!! I love those, especially the third one.

When you mention converting back to a dip - does this mean you chemically converted to a tet, and afterwards the same plant returned to being a dip? Or did this happen spontansoulsy with additional fans of the same converted plant?

I'm confused (granted, it doesn't take much to confuse me, even with my science background!) ~Jan
