Isn't it a great feeling to go from hurry, hurry, hurry... to now I can take my time and enjoy myself. Sit back, relax and look up all the new plants for the 10th time, and plan how they are going to look in the spring.

I got busy and got all my markers out and in place for the fall arriving daylilies. It has taken me some time to get them in order by height, something I don't always get around too. I dug all the holes and filled them back with compost. I have the first four beds finished and those are the ones I really needed to get finished for the fall arriving plants. I can work or the rest later during the cooler weather. So I was sitting pretty at lunch time waiting for the two shipments to arrive on Friday until my wife looked out the front door and said there are two packages on the porch. Both trades were suppose to arrive on Friday, but here they were already a day early, so glad I decided not to sleep in this morning but to get out and get those beds finished. I soaked the plants in Azoxystrobin, then got out and got them all the the ground.

Got out and pulled a few weeds. That did not last long I was not in the mood for pulling weeds again!
Decided I had rather do something with the daylilies. So I decided to dig a clump of 'Rose Emily', I had a request last night to provide some fans of it to the Montgomery daylily club to plant in the Montgomery Botanical garden. It was down in the upper part of the bog, so not real muddy. I noticed while I was there that 'Panic In Detroit' was blooming and had a proliferation on one scape. So I went and got the camera took photos of the few plants that were blooming today and harvested the little proliferation. That reminded me of all the prolifs that I had done nothing with that were still growing on 'Green Arrow'. So I harvested all the scapes with prolifs. I tossed most of them, had no need for so many proliferations, but I did save a few. I planted them in some small one gallon trade pots...Oh I did harvest some seeds from 'Peru-B-Ruby' also this morning. I planted those but tossed some from 'The Jury's Out', just more seeds than I have room for.
I selected the prolifs I wanted to keep from 'Green Arrow' and started planting them like I normally do...cut about an inch above the prolif and cut about three inches below. But, I noticed that it seemed the prolifs were all growing out sideways from the scape and that if I cut the scape in short pieces (two or three inches containing several prolifs) and planted the scapes horizontally in the pot instead of vertically it would work better. So I will be interested to see which method works best.
Only a few things still blooming.
I had two beautiful blooms on 'Shamrock Dew'

I found a pod with 2 seeds on h. fulva 'Europa' Blinking while seed harvesting. It will be interesting to see if they sprout.

Larry, Shamrock Dew is lovely. Beautiful blooms.

I am interested in your little fence around Rose Emily. Is that to discourage pests?

I havent done anything productive in the garden all summer except water and fertilize so Im so far behind on weeds and along with three other boxes, a very large box showed up from blueridge. Heaven help me, they are bigger than usual and thats big. I cant ever keep them that big until they establish themselves but for now they need a hole as big as they are. A pot wont do it and all my 30 gallon pots are occupied.

I agree, very pretty bloom larry

Got a bunch of rooted prolifs in the ground, potted up rooted Scandinavia prolifs for a friend, took rooted prolifs of Isabelle Rose, Almira Buffalo Bone Jackson and Breathing in Snowflakes to another friend. Then cut some more prolifs that had emerged and put them in water to root. Ignoring the ones on some plants.

I promised myself I had enough gardens to manage and would not dig more. But the ones I have are full. And I have a couple more daylilies coming this fall and want to order others I don't have next spring. What to do? Will likely limb a couple trees a little higher where there is too much shade still, but that's not going to add much space.

Yes down in the bog area I use those wire cages to keep the digging critters from digging down into the roots and digging up the plants. I started out using them taller than the one shown in the photo. gradually I experimented with gradually making them shorter and have found that even just a short one section height has so far been able to protect the roots and the plant from being dug out of the ground. I don't know if the low of a cage would have worked in the beginning, but the taller cages seemed to have acted to train the critters, sort of like an electric fence still being effective even with the current cut off after a training period.

Interesting. Thanks for the explanation!

My big task for the day was one I had not been planning on. The other day, my next door neighbor came over with two enormous clumps of daylilies he had dug out of his front yard. He was giving them because he knew I was a gardener and loved daylilies. I was not around when he came, but my husband was, and he accepted the daylilies with a smile. I wrung my hands when I saw the clumps sitting in our garden cart, but I don't know if I would have been able to say no to him, either.

I have no idea what the cultivar is. They are a nondescript yellow with a rusty-red throat, tallish. On the plus side, they are very profuse and long bloomers, and they have not gotten rust. (I know because I anxiously checked them every few days all summer--they are very close to my yard, and I didn't want his plants to get rust from mine.) I didn't know what to do with them, though. I do not have room for them.

So I cut them all back, divided them, and potted them. I ended up with 12 pots with 4-5 fans in each. I stuck them down at the end of my driveway and put a notice up on the neighborhood FB page, thanking our neighbor by name for his generosity and offering to share the plants with whoever wants some. We'll see what happens.

That was a great sharing jesture for your neighbor and you. Hurray!

I have a lot of small pots of NOID Daylily. Not sure where I am going to hold them over until I have a permanent place for them. I have a very long road bank that has some Ditch Daylily growing in it but mostly weeds. I would like to eventually get it weeded once and for all and plant these Daylily plus left over Iris on this road bank. Maybe next your if I can find a place to plant them inground to overwinter them.

That looks like an old one from the 40s or 50s. No idea what though.

I spent the afternoon digging in Daylilies to the bottom of Daylily Hill that had been removed from the Island bed. I think I have weeded out all the Kwanso but I'll find out next summer the hard way. I'm sure some worthy cultivars were tossed into the woods by accident but I'm more concerned with removing the Kwanso. I can always replace them with newer and better.
Still, some needed to have a chance taken on them so they have been relocated.

Then I weeded, cleaned, top dressed with Milorganite and watered the Island bed, the Patio bed and the Fence bed.
My gardening friend came in the middle of the afternoon. He continues his project of digging out and cleaning Lower Daylily Hill. I am going to have a bunch more space to play with!

I did get rust this year, it came in on Seashells and Lace ( Tim Bell) and infected everything. I'm hoping for a cold winter ( we're due) to make sure it all dies off. I'll still mulch with oak leaves though as I'd like to tide some of the Evergreens through.

Yes, or even older. It reminds me of "Linda." Not an exact match, but it has a similar look.

Oh dear Zoia-

So sorry you got rust - what a pain. That's why I usually don't order from the south except in the fall, athough I know you can get it with a shipment from the north if they have brought it into their garden that spring. Bleh.

I really like the way you name your daylily beds. Will have to think up some good names for mine this winter.

My beds have names, but they're not very imaginative: Driveway Bed, Front Bed, Garage Bed, Patio Bed, etc. The only one I like is "Cottage Garden," which was the original one I made about 8-10 years ago to attract pollinators. After that I ran out of creativity, I guess.

Happy to say I have zero DL coming in fall. Although I do keep looking at seeds on LA. I already have about 15 cold-damp stratifying in the fridge, ready to warm up in October.
Last week I got 7 new DLs, 3 from a generous benefactor, and 4 from Partridge Hill Gardens (I only ordered 2, they are too generous!). All are potted up right now so I can baby them on the balcony with daily attention and spray them with fungicides etc, while I have a think of where in heck to put them. I also have plenty of potted seedlings.
My unbloomed seedings I was hoping to just keep in pots and hope they survive winter, I would like to decide if they are worth planting or not before making an effort.
My plan is to toss NOIDs and replicates (e.g. I split one NOID last year and planted in 3 places, so 2 can be tossed and replaced this year to save space). Only then will I dig a new bed.
I know this may sound lazy but I am happy to receive smaller plants than larger ones as it means less digging. I hate digging.

Did not get much done in the garden this weekend, we had our first daylily meeting finally on Saturday. So nice to finally see we did have a few club members still. I was given a list of daylilies to enter for our club sale in October, over two hundred from one member who had the opportunity to dig all the plants of a former member's garden a couple of years ago who's health had gotten so bad he could not continue to garden. I had over fifty myself, so that is what I spent my weekend working on. I was using open office and it kept crashing and dropping photos, and was just a pain to work with. I spent a lot of my time researching how to work around all the problems with the computer program. Finally I did manage to get everything entered, but I had some real scares a few times and had to enter pages of the list over again. Never did figure out how to make a reliable backup copy. By the time I finished I had pretty well worked out the bugs, but I cringed every time the program crashed and had to try to restore itself and my data. Well at least I could watch college football while working, and it also rained some during the day Sunday so I did not feel I had lost too much garden time.

All I could do was run out out early to see if anything was opening but it was too dark and cold ( 52). I did get my neighbor Julia to take some photos for me this afternoon. So hopefully I'll have something to post! I also tried to tip the spider out of my rain gauge in case she was stuck in there. Left the tube gently pointing downwards in case she decided to leave.
