Crossing and growing daylilies from seed is a patient person’s endeavor, as it typically takes at least 3 years for a seedling to bloom for the first time. Even then, only a small percentage of seedlings will be both hardy and beautiful, and thus, worthy of keeping. We also propagate daylilies by splitting, so we try to add new varieties from other growers each year (to expand our breeding program and just for plain enjoyment). In our small greenhouse, we also grow (from seeds, plugs, and cuttings) an array of annual and perennial flowers/plants (both hybrid and heirloom). Most of our plant beds (with the exception of our daylily seedling beds) are naturalized around our property. It is truly breathtaking when most of our flowers are in full bloom!
We enjoy selling reusable metal hanging baskets, with biodegradable coconut liners. We build planters using wood harvested on our farm, and we also “upcycle” pots and planters we purchase at local thrift stores (and even things other people are discarding) Whenever possible, we recycle our own greenhouse pots and use those made from recycled plastic.
