When to Planting Aegopodium

I planted aegopodium in the spring in prior years. Can the plant and/or seed be planted this time of year?

Young plants can be placed in the garden now. Make sure you water them well so they will become established before they go dormant for the winter.
If your starting seeds I would wait until March to sow the seeds indoors.

Bishop’s Weed and Stella Dora Daylilies

Do I cut off the pods on the Daylilies once the blooms have died, or do I cut the whole stem down? And, if I cut down the whole stem, will they bloom again this season?

My bishops weed has turned brown and burned from all this 90 degree weather. If I cut it all down, will it grow back again this summer?

Deadheading your Daylilies each day, will help the remainder flowers open and bloom fully.
When all the flowers have bloomed, you can then cut that stalk down to the plant base.
There are some varieties of Daylily that bloom more then once a growing season, but the vast majority will bloom only once.

Allow the foliage to die down naturally to feed the plant for next years flowers.

Cutting back the Bishop's Weeds should not effect the plants too terribly much, as they are quite hardy.
They may grow back slightly this season, but a recovering for next year is most likely.

How much seed do I get to cover 600 square feet rather quickly? Or if it comes as plants, how many plants would I get? Thank you!

Spacing of plants should be 9 to 12 inches. Plant spread is approx 18".
You can generally order 'plugs' of the plants for planting in large areas.
Seeds can be directly sown into the soil but your coverage may not be even.
Follow seed sowing recommendations from the seed source.

Keep in mind that Snow On The Mountain can be invasive.

Snow on the Mountain

Is it grown by planting seed? How tall can it get?

ANSWERS

These typically propagate by rhizome. the best way is to dig some of the roots up and plant portions of it. Dividing them will give you the best success with propagating these. They will grow roughly ankle-high. Here is an article with more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/groundcover/snow-on-the-mountain/snow-on-the-mountain-plant.htm
