Smart and Frugal Thinning of SeedlingsSmart and Frugal Thinning of Seedlings
By dave, July 28, 2015

In this video, Trish demonstrates how she manages her trays of seedlings. Rather than simply cut away excess seedlings in a tray, she divides the seedlings and pots them up into empty cells. This way she ends up with full trays of seedlings with very few wasted plants.

For form, structure, and color, this is the perfect daylily. 'Chang Dynasty' will look as fresh at 6pm in the evening as it does at 8 AM. Year after year, its blooms glow in the garden, radiating those peach, coral, and yellow tones. Classic and elegant in form and structure, 'Chang Dynasty' is a beauty to behold. One of my favs!

By DogsNDaylilies on Jul 29, 2015 10:21 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Gentle Shepherd')

Gentle Shepherd is probably my whitest white (I purchased it the day I took this photo). It starts out a little creamier in the morning and bleaches nicely into a whiter color. Its scapes aren't particularly strong, but are strong enough to support it standing straight up without bending or waving around too much.

By Chillybean on Jul 29, 2015 9:56 AM, concerning plant: Maximilian Sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani)

I planted these for several reasons: Native to the US, not an annual, a lively spreader, and a natural food source for the birds. The Goldfinches just relish those greens and later the seeds as they dry. I have been concerned by the amount of pesticides put on bird food to prevent meal moths and the like. The birds get that in their mouths and we become exposed to it when we handle the seed.

Mine tend to bloom early, starting in July, but others wait until late August into September. The plant spreads mostly by rhizomes, but I have found a few from germinated seeds in other locations. It has not become bothersome in any way.

By ARoseblush on Jul 29, 2015 9:09 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Florence Denny')

Daylily 'Florence Denny' is a monster of a plant. The 8 1/2 inch flower, with deeply ruffled edge, never hangs or droops with the weight of the flower. Florence always stands tall in my garden. This year she has outdone herself with 21 buds. This flower apparently is easy to hybridize. Fertile both ways. Because the flower is a neutral cream color, and if you are looking to promote a larger bloom size, this may be the plant to try. I will set pollen on it this summer. Always beautiful, and I believe underappreciated, 'Florence Denny' is an outstanding daylily.

These are pollinator magnets! All kinds of little fliers love them.

I have a bunch filling a 6'Lx3" W raised bed. A few escape, and are easily pulled up, and relocated on an embankment for erosion control.

I can see that someone might get annoyed if they wanted it in a certain area, and it randomly kept popping up out of boundaries, but if it's used "correctly" and given an area to itself to spread in, its boundaries can be easily maintained by a lawn mower, weed barrier, stonework, or even raised beds and walkways.

It shouldn't be planted near persons with bee sting allergies, because it bustles with pollinators, including bees and wasps.

It can self seed, and individual plants pop up in various places, and that might be what they mean by invasive.

Self sowing plants, if left there, can start new colonies, that would be hard to get rid of, especially in unmowable places.
