Q.Day Lily care

Zone 03853 | sjliberty@roadrunner.com added on October 9, 2017 | Answered

There are day lilies around my yard that were here when I bought my home. For the past couple of years a few “clumps” that used to bloom (many flowers) have not bloomed at all. is there anything I can do to “revive” them ? Thanks

Yes, you can revive them!. They need regular division to keep them young and bloomful. (I just made up that word, sorry) You can do this yet this fall or early next spring. Dig up the entire clump, pull of some of the outside sections and replant them while adding compost to the soil. Toss out the center of the plant; it is old and tired. If they are the reblooming type of daylily, give them some fertilizer after the first bloom.
