Labor Day 2019 has come and gone and now its time to relax from a rewarding Spring and Summer in the gardens. Right? Wrong!
Fall is the best time of the year to start implementing your ideas for Spring 2020. Not that it's Fall here in northwest Georgia - it's 93 degrees today but low humidity (38%). Heat and low humidity means . . . close to a drought in Georgia. But, I digress.
My rewarding idea for Spring 2020 was to find more space for 20 new daylily cultivars that I purchased in August and to dedicate at least one raised bed to Miniatures & Smalls. (Word to the Wise: Not the best idea to purchase 20 new daylily cultivars in August without having space for them.)
So, in the midst of a huge allergy attack, my husband of 49 years agreed to help me empty and turn an existing raised bed 90 degrees, build and place a new raised bed, then empty and fill both with newly amended soil and . . . plants.
We did it in two days and we're tired! But, I don't have to wait until next Spring to feel the sense of accomplishment and to imagine what these new cultivars will look like in OUR garden.
If you want to see what daylily cultivars were added this fall, go to the New Additions link on the Rita Bees Garden & Apiary website and take a look.
Also added to the website is an Alphabetical List of all daylilies for sale (unless they're for DISPLAY ONLY, which means we only have a few fans left and are propagating them for future sale.
Browse away and if, by chance, you'd like to order any daylilies . . . do so! September is a great time to get daylilies in the ground and acclimated before Winter sets in and Spring returns.

Rita Bee is simply in awe of what she sees when she stops long enough to smell the flowers and observe what lands on them.
