Friends, winter is finally starting to pack her bags, thankfully! We were down to 21 degrees on March 6, which simply never happens here. It has been a wet/cold season, but the good news is the daylilies LOVE IT and I expect a tremendous bloom season this year at the Lily Farm!
We have continued to reorganize the farm in my quest to make shopping here a joyous experience for all! We now have all named cultivars together at the front of our shadehouses, and the ENTIRE BACK SECTION of shadehouses filled with seedlings are now for sale to the public. This will be the largest selection of daylilies we have ever offered to our customers!! We will continue to offer “seedling clumps” (3 fans of more) for $20 a clump, and Buy any 4 seedlings and Get the 5th absolutely free, your choice, of equal or lesser value! In addition, we plan to sell some of these for the first time ever online via our website and Facebook!
This has been a very busy year for us! Lindsey is finishing up her senior year of high school and preparing to choose a college to attend. Kelsey has been doing great things at her job at USAA, and her husband Jarek has as well as a teacher and coach at Warren High School. Cocoa Bear continues to run the farm operation and bark at Jose whenever possible (:>}) !
Last, I want to once again say “Thank YOU” from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our work here at the farm. The daylily world has changed dramatically over the past 5 years due to online selling forums, making survival of a business such as ours truly challenging. God has helped us continue through these challenges, and our dream is to keep the farm running many years into the future. It simply would not happen without the incredible loyalty of our customers who drive many hours to see this incredible place God has blessed us with running. We are truly humbled by you! We look forward to seeing our old friends this coming bloom season, and or course making brand new ones along the way as well! See you in May!
