a little more

when i plant seeds they are 6 inches 15 cm apart. they grow that way for three years. at the end of those three years the keepers go to a bed where they have about two or three times as much room. and after three more years the keepers get even a little more room. more room to strut their stuff. watching the strutting is a good thing…

      Hi Judy, We are in the city of Cleveland and while our lot is comparatively large for our neighborhood it is almost large enough for what I am doing. And just large enough for me to keep up with what I am doing. If you get my drift. Our yard is 45 ft x 270 ft or 0.279 acres. When you take out the house, the driveway, the garage, and the areas that are too shady there is enough to keep me busy and happy. Oh and I forgot the temporary green mulch zone/ pathway where I display clover and dandelions. I have a three year rotation on the new seedlings. So if all goes well each season two beds each roughly 4 feet x 20 feet are planted with some 600 seeds. All totaled there something around 2000 daylilies in the yard. And a smattering of other perennial’s, annuals, and pots scattered about. And that might just be too much information. Thanks for asking.

        Wow! I have a normal amount of daylilies, love them all, but know how they tend to expand. I just admire what you do and had to ask because I was envisioning these huge clumps, but I’m guessing you’re dealing more with smaller plants, But 2000 of anything is a lot. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
