How to plant Daylily

Daylilies (Hemerocallis) are hardy to -15C and can survive outside without any winter protection. This means you can plant daylilies directly outside in the spring either in pots or borders.

— Soak the roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting out.

— Plant your bare roots into temporary pots in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors to plant out later as a potted plant. Alternatively, plant directly into a clear, cultivated space in borders.

— Plant the roots so that they are fully submerged with any buds just below the surface and any top growth or leaves exposed.

— Choose a space in the garden which receives full sun or partial shade.

— Space the plants 15-20cm apart

— Water-in after planting and keep hydrated when in growth
