RE: can we talk container gardening?

Chris: If I ever work up the nerve to come to NYC, I'd love to see your
daylily collection, too! That sounds like some serious work with
daylilies that you do...I'm impressed.

Wendy,<br><br>I'm a bit obsessive about not throwing away a cutting or a
division. I<br>try to pot up all the left overs. Luckily I've started my
summer<br>vacation (I'm a teacher), but my first week off I was home
with walking<br>pneumonia. I was sick all of June and dead tired, but
was trying not to<br>resort to antibiotics. As soon as school was over I
gave up the fight!<br><br><br>I'm keeping a photographic record of my
gardens. I try to take photos<br>of individual plants in various stages
of growth. I have my whole<br>garden divided into about 35 garden areas.
I set up folders for each<br>and put the digital images I take into the
folder for each garden. It<br>is very satisfying to have good garden
records. All of my 320+<br>daylilies have metal stakes with labels with
the plant name ,<br>hybridizer, and introduction date. I will eventually
submit my garden<br>as a National Daylily Display Garden. It will have
to be accepted by the<br>regional VP. I've got many of my hostas and
other perennials labeled as<br>well, but I use less obvious markers on
those.<br><br>Chris<br>Long Island, NY<br>Zone
