DIGGING.....If you already  know which daylilies you wish to
purchase, without seeing them, we dig from April
to  3rd  week in Sept.  Our daylilies are growing naturally in the
garden and are not in pots.  The plants  are  sold bare-rooted &
require digging, separating, labeling & bagging which is
sometimes difficult & time consuming.We work with shovels,
knives &  scissors to get the task done and we can not
supersede other orders and shipments.  
We therefore can not dig to order unless the time is available......Montauk is
in Zone .7
VACATIONERS......As  a  special  convenience-service  to  those  of  
you  who  are visiting  the  East End....you
may visit the garden.....select your cultivars.....pay for them....resume you
vacation....then pick up your order just before you head  home. Your
daylilies will have been freshly dug,  bagged &  ready to go. Your new
plants can be planted upon arrival home or in a day or so. If you prefer we
can ship your order.
MINIMUM ORDER....$25         
BONUS PLANTS.....We always  provide  bonus daylilies with your order
which is equivalent to about  20% or more of your cost as our way of
saying "Thank You".
SHIPPING & HANDLING...$10 plus .25 cents @ plant..shipping available April
- Sept.. NYS residents please include  8.75%  sales tax. We dig shipping
orders on Sunday, let the root systems dry during the day , pack them at  the
end of the day and  ship them early on Monday mornings so that they will
arrive at  you residences  before the week-end...No shipments to Ca.
GUARANTEE....We provide double  divisions (2 fans) which are of  flower
age (not immature seedlings) of @ daylily  unless otherwise  noted.   If  you  
are  not
happy  with  your  plants,  for  any  reason,   do not plant them.  Simply return
them, immediately, for a full refund.
GIFT CERTIFICATES    Either a  gift of  daylilies  in  a  gift  box or a  gift
placed in a card is a very different way  to  remember someone who is
special to  you.
It  is  not  the  "same old - same old".  It  is  an  unending  way  to  say.. Thank
You... Congratulations...Happy Birthday...I Love You...Isn't Life Wonderful.
OBSERVATIONS....If you are unable to visit the garden and the only daylilies
you can remember seeing are the "tiger-lilies"  (misnomer)  by the side of  
the road on the way to  Grandma's  house are you in for a surprise.  Our
web-site  is a glimpse of the  tip of a very huge iceberg.  Species plants,
brought into this country around the turn
of the last century and before,  have been metamorphosed  into the
extraordinary  cultivars  available today. Very dedicated hybridizers, not
research institutions, are responsible for this phenome.
Today's  daylily  is  now  truly   
MONTAUK...... juts out into the Atlantic Ocean &  is surrounded  by
water on three sides.  It is a very  primordial  place. The waters
and  the proximity to the Gulf Stream create  long  languid  
autumns,  imagined  springs,  comfortably  breezy summers  and
when it snows in the winter a  sense of wilderness. ..Wildness.  If  
you permit yourself to feel this place you will become  one of the
edge-walkers;  a state beyond  comfort & sameness; and  step  
into  you. Montauk is  the  jewel-beyond  and  the primal scream!
VISITING..........We have  some daylilies starting  their bloom the  last week
in May (these are few &  far between). There  are  some  rebloomers that
are still  blooming  in early September (these  are also  limited).  If you are
searching for  blooms during these  times  this  is  the  time  to view them.  
Between these  two  periods the daylily bloom escalates then diminishes.
The peak bloom time  is from middle June through July.  If you choose
plants that bloom during peak time you are  really limiting your- self  &  
your garden.  Daylilies are all on different  time schedules &  you can
a  new visual garden every two weeks if you choose wisely . At first,  it's
nice to have everyone  blooming  at  once but  it's   more  fun to  have  
some  plants  bloom  in  a  staggered  fashion so  that  there  is  always  a   
new  surprise  and   new color  as   the
season progresses.  Since hybridizers are creating  new daylilies at such
an astonishing  rate and  photos,  pictures  in books  and  images  on-line  
can be  deceiving  why  not
spend  a  few  brief  moments  to view some  lovely  daylilies   that  will  be  
with  you throughout your lifetime?...As an example: in our         
Daylily List  you will
see the color yellow over & over again and you have just the spot for a
yellow daylily.  All yellow daylilies  are  not created equal!  Each yellow
daylily has a different  name because  it  is different from the others.  That  
means  here  is  a  different shade  of
yellow, a different shape, texture, luminosity, height,  fragrance,  petal
number, bud count, bloom season,  performance  level...on & on.  
Considering how many yellow daylilies  there  are,  there  are  hybridizers  
still   registering  yellow daylilies because
there's just something else that's different about  the  new one.  Daylily  
is  on an  incredible  roll and  is  picking up  speed with no end  in sight.  
Every  year
there  are new breakthroughs  (a  new  element  that  fractures  the  
existing  daylily \profile)  These  plants  are  definitely not in a  static
mode......We  usually do not go anywhere  once  the season has  begun so  
a  good  time  to  visit is  between  10am- -3pm daily.......We are sometimes
open until dark or on a  rare occasion closed  for
the day so you can give us a call for a recorded ( hours) message  if  you  
wish........ ...631-668-5960
