Hello Daylily Friends,
Thrips. Fast forward to this year: I didn't spray; I just let the garden grow naturally. Bad mistake! So I went to Griffin Greenhouse and Nursery Supply and purchased a small container of KONTOS, which cost a mere $170.00. I know that spraying now is certainly not optimal, but it has helped. Be assured that I will get this problem under control for next year's crop.
If anyone has any additional suggestions about Thrip control, I am a listening audience.
like the song, but when Diana told me that she asked her to sing it, I was thrilled. Lily Rae even repeated some of he words and phrases from the song. Little Lily Rae is the best!
went out to see 1-408, and it stands above everything else in the Garden. It is 42" tall, and looks like it could be a spider except that it has round flowers that are 7 1/2" in diameter. It has 4-way branching and 27 buds. Indeed, 1-408 was chosen as the best large daylily at the Region 5 Conference held in 2012 in Savannah. You could look back at the blog on June 10, 2012, to read about the Regional Conference. Well, several days ago I took another picture of 1-408. It is just such a gorgeous daylily!
I see that we now have 96 followers. I'm so pleased that we have 96 friends who follow this blog, and I'm looking forward to when we reach the number 100, which I hope will be very soon.
