Good afternoon all! I was pleased to see that some of my #daylily plants are making an early start to the year! I thought it was a sign that the weather was getting warmer, but having just seen the weather forecast, snow could be returning at the weekend! 😀

Good evening all! Here's a picture from earlier in the year of one of the many #daylily flowers I got after splitting my pot bound plants last year! This one is variety 'Inner View' and was the plant that benefited most from being split! See the following link for how they looked before - https://www.gardentags.com/share/plant/257664 😀 #hemerocallis

@titchyfra - Morning Franca! Definitely! They're certainly worth persevering with even though they appear only fleetingly! So many different varieties to choose from too! 😀

@rachelbrooks - Thanks very much Rachel! Maybe they need splitting like mine? Mine only had a couple of flowers last year but they did very well after splitting! 😀

Maybe 🤔 it's not very big...only got it last year but I did move it in the Spring so perhaps that effected its flowering..? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Good afternoon all! Was supposed to be planting spring bulbs this afternoon but got sidetracked by my pot bound day lilies! Split three pots and ended up with about thirty new plants! Now I've just got to work out where to put them all! 😀 #daylily #hemerocallis

They will be greatfull for it n lots more for next year that's why I always run out of space with splitting plants i ended up with 8 hostas this year but they will have to be given away next year too many taking up patio space 😕
