Look what greeted me this morning 😀


Ho Ho Ho Hemerocallis!!

Now, surely this can’t be right!!

On a wander up the garden this morning, I noticed that my Hemerocallis are shooting up already!!  I have been growing Day Lillies for about 5 years and have NEVER known them to be anything but dormant at this time of the year.

Now, like other Bloggers I am concerned that any cold snap we might have after Christmas will wipe them out entirely for next year.  On the plus side, they are in pots which means I can move them inside, but nevertheless, this has highlighted to me the amount of attention I will need to pay to the weather forecasts in the New Year.

The sooner the polytunnel is up, the better!!
