Day lilies are starting to flower now, each flower only lasts a day but now that the clumps are getting larger, each clump flowers for about a month. They really like our heavy soil so have collected rather a lot with different colours, reds, pinks, purples, whites, yellows and apricot. Unfortunately we now have the Hemerocallis gall midge which deforms the day lily buds so I am having to follow the RHS advice of taking off the deformed buds and disposing of them- but not on the compost heap. This will hopefully stop the life cycle of the midge and eventually eradicate it. In the meantime we have hundreds of good flowers to enjoy.
