*sigh* So, 3 years ago I was a brand-newbie to daylily seeds. I made a 5 x 15 foot bed. I put down a sheet of perforated landscaping cloth 6" underneath the soil, thinking it would keep the weeds at bay. WRONG. It made the daylily roots grow sideways. I thought since weeds are able to go thru the sheet that they would too. WRONG AGAIN. I also think they are too close together and are not able to show their true potential because of that. DOH! I just spent 5 hours digging up, seperating according to size and preparing that same bed again but without the black sheet. Waaaaahhhhhhhh! All of these will not fit in the same bed again....no stinkin' way (since they need to be spaced properly). Sooo, my question is this- these seeds were grown in pots in Winter of 2009-2010 and were planted outside Spring 2010. I have 4 catergories of ones that I have divided- Large, medium , small and extra small. I have planted the large and can plant half of the medium. I have to make a new bed for the rest of the mediums. Do you think it is worth it to plant all of the smalls and extra smalls dues to the fact that they were overcrowded? Since I'm new, I don't know how hard they "fight" to bloom. I just don't want to wait more time and spce if they aren't worth it. Oh, and most of these are fromt he auction, so it's a costly move. *sigh* Newbies.
Oh, and the make matters worse, the drought made it hard for the rest in my other beds to bloom, so I have even less space than I thought! I threw out alot, but not as much as I would have liked. Argrhgrhghghhhhh!
please send some experienced thoughts my way....
