Re: Daylilies and seeds...

Bonnie - I'm no expert but I tried it last fall. Tell her to get a
sandwich bag, fill w/ good potting soil and moisten. Mix the seeds in
the damp potting soil, shut the bag and put it in the fridge (NOT the
freezer) for 6 weeks, mark the calendar or date the bag, I do both. At
the end of 6 weeks, take them out and plant them in a pot like normal. I
left mine out all winter except when it got really cold (20's) then I
brought it in. Early spring I had little grass like looking sprouts and
now they are almost big enough to plant, maybe in October. I read that
soemwhere in one of my books, can't remember which but it worked. I have
three more bags w/ daylily seeds in my fridge now actually. Tell her to
try that and good luck!!
