How long can daylilies stay potted?
We're in the middle of building a house in the next town over, so many of the dayliles I ordered this year are currnetly potted up. I built new raised beds for quite a few at our new property, but the rest I don't want to put in the ground because of all the construction going on.
My question is, how long can I keep the daylilies potted for? I'm hoping to keep them potted until next spring when we are actually living at the new house and the ground isn't frozen. If I can keep them potted, how should I over winter them? I have a number of walk-in zipper greenhouses I can keep some of them in, but we're talking about around 200 pots ranging is size from 1g to 3g. Should I order cold frames...just cover them with sheets when it gets close to freezing...or just keep them in a protected area (in my existing beds underneath established shrubs)? Any help would be wonderful! I've never overwintered potted daylilies before, but have had good luck with potted roses over winter.
