Mail Order

This is how I received my mail order plants from DIRECTGARDENING.COM I ordered
2 Daylillies Purple D'Oro
2 Hosta.Regal Blue
2 Hydrangea Trees
2 Japanese Lily
10 Iris, Eye of Tiger Dutch
2 Monk's Cap Purple

1 Stella D'Oro Daylilly
4 Flowering Shamrock

I hope that "Instruction book" they included, has plenty of instructions, because I've never planted bare root plants before. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


  1. I haven't done a lot of mail order. I don't think any of those should be too difficult. Some may need to be soaked in water first. I dig up and transplant daylilies all the time and they always do fine. Hopefully someone else will be able to give you better help.
    I can't wait to see how they grow :)

  2. Don't worry. You can't mess 'em up. You could accidentally plant something upside down, but even then, they'll rightside themselves as they grow. The only difference with bare root planting is you have to have more patience to see it grow to the size you're picturing in your head.

  3. Thanks Cathrine and Jim. I'm going to be brave.

  4. They will all do great! I have learned that even I can't kill a daylily so you should do very well! Enjoy~

  5. Daylily roots do very well and certainly don't need any soaking. I would think all those plants could go right into the soil, though I am not sure about those Hydrangea trees.

    Good luck!
