Weather has been somewhat cooperative. It rains a lot, which means far less hauling water out to the new transplants! They should be heavily watered in the first day, maybe some the second day, but then, probably not. The roots need to be encouraged to go fairly deep and seek moisture on their own. If we were experiencing a dry spell, I might say otherwise. But it's spring in New England, and that usually means a fair bit of rainfall. Unfortunately, it keeps me inside a lot. Like HERE, at the computer! HA!
There are still several more deliveries to come in and I expect some will show up this week. I feel like I can breathe long enough to do two or three appointments in the next couple of days, and then Thursday is supposed to be a beautiful day! That should give me a running start on what needs to be done. I also have a couple of friends who will be getting some of my plants in the mail, so I need to package those up, asap.
Oh! And I have found budded scapes on three daylilies! Elizabeth, always the first to bloom each year, might be challenged for that title by Elfin. I also have found a wee scape on one of the many Little Bob daylilies I have.
