The HADS Display Garden needs to be weeded and mulched. A work party will be organized next month.

The Regional meeting is being scaled back due to the poor response. It will still be held, but car pools will be used instead of buses and some meals will not be included.

There is nothing I like better at the end of a hot summer’s day than taking a short walk around the garden. You can smell the heat coming up from the earth to meet the cooler night air.

June Meeting

Our June meeting is Saturday, June 16th at 10 am at the Cooperative Extension offices in Voorheesville. It’s sure to be a busy meeting with the distribution of babysitter plants and a silent auction of plants that didn’t make it to last month’s members’ sale. Some of the plants came from Wisconsin, where they also had a late spring and the plants weren’t ready to be shipped in May. We now have all the plants so we’re ready to rock and roll.

The babysitter plants will be distributed as usual. Names of eligible members will be drawn and matched up to the number of a babysitter plant. The member will take the plant home and care for

it until the plant grows enough fans, usually 5 to 7, to be brought back for auction at the members’ sale. The doting caretaker will then receive a fan

to take back to their garden. Because the plants still belong to HADS while they are growing to size in members’ gardens, we ask that all members receiving plants sign a contract with HADS that they understand the plant belongs to HADS and that they will return it. Babysitter plants are generally higher priced plants and HADS uses the babysitter program to obtain these daylilies for the members who will eventually either receive a fan for free or be able to purchase the plant at the members’ auction.

This year, our babysitter plants have come from Northern Grown Perennials in Ferryville, WI; Perfect Perennials in York, PA; and Kennesaw Mountain Daylilies in Marietta, GA
The babysitter plants are:

Another Man’s Praise
Ark of Refuge
Dark Purple Matter
Eggplant Luminosity
Heritage House
Kennesaw Sunset
Magical Morning
Parting the Waters
Pollo Grasso
Potter’s Wheel
Pretty in Purple

Call for Daylily Donations

It isn’t too early to be thinking about the Big Annual Sale we have at Faddegon’s Nursery in August. The sale relies on donations from members of daylilies they are willing to share. If you have daylilies that have grown too big and you’re ready to split them up or have daylilies that you want to donate so you have more room for newer varieties, then do we have a deal for you! We will help you dig up your plants and take away the ones you
don’t want!!

If you have donations for this year’s sale, please let Stephanie Kronau know by e-mail (skronau@nycap.rr.com) or by phone
(518) 283-6107
. We need to know the name of the variety and how many fans you are donating. Please let Stephanie know by July 15th so we have time to get the list organized and make labels and bags for the fans. Thanks!
