A Message from Pollie 2018


Well, it is truly freezing out there but there isn’t a cloud in the sky and I’m hoping Spring is now on its way. Welcome to my 2018 plant list. Yet again I have had so much fun putting the catalogue together although I must say sorry to my very loyal customers as there still isn’t all that much new for 2018. However I have revamped the special offers list a little and I am thrilled to be offering some of the prettiest daylilies in the display this year. 2017 was a truly spectacular season as I hope it was for you too, hardly any gall midge, the new beds were amazing and I’m hoping that as they bulk up they will be even more stunning, lots still settling in too so still a huge amount to look forward to. Too many expletives but I couldn’t resist putting a picture of Websters Pink Wonder on the front cover again, I think that says it all. Terry has recently turned 70 and at last, probably, no more than that, I just can’t get him to stop, he is going to retire and help me out more with the garden and the display. He is, as ever, my hero.

For those of you who are looking at the list/website for the first time you will soon discover that I am truly a daylily fanatic and hold the National Collection of Spider and Unusual Form daylilies, (now numbering something over 700), out of a complete collection of just over 2000+ For those loyal customers who have read all this before sincere apologies for the repetition! Some of the plants that we grow here are very new to this country and we continue to trial them for weather hardiness and overall performance so that when they finally clump up sufficiently, we can supply you with good garden worthy plants. Sadly, this can take a few years and we are very grateful to all our loyal customers who are prepared to wait for them.

Now to the catalogue, plants will be sent out/sold on a first come, first served basis from mid March to June subject to weather conditions and again during September and October. They travel through the post bare rooted and most of the daylilies I am offering are growing on in 2 litre pots at present and are, (with some exceptions), almost always at least 2 fans so hopefully they will grow on well for you and be just what the doctor ordered. As ever you will see that the prices of the plants vary a great deal. In some cases the cultivars offered are still rarely available in the UK and the prices reflect this. As far as the limited list is concerned if you do not order early it would probably be advisable to contact me first by telephone or by e-mail to check that plants are still available. In nearly all cases last year we were able to provide all requests and I don’t send substitutes unless you provide me with a list or I have discussed this with you first. You have the option of paying by cheque or Paypal. Please also make sure you take advantage of the discounts as detailed on the order form.

As far as my mail order efforts go it continues to be very reassuring and encouraging to receive all your lovely e-mails, cards and letters to tell me how happy you are with your plants and how well they are growing. It really is very kind of you to bother. As usual the catalogue is available as a PDF giving you the opportunity of looking at the catalogue pictures in full resolution thus enhancing their beauty!

We are still sorting out the website and hopefully we will be able to get a few more pictures on there soon but as usual we spent far too much time looking at the display and not taking pictures last year. Please also click on the direct link to the Pollies Daylilies Facebook page if you want to see what exciting blooms appeared last year. Our hybridising efforts are continuing and with the exceptional season last year there was so much to see, assess and compost too!... We again had some lovely new seedlings blooming last year and can’t wait to see what this year brings. So, hopefully lots to look forward to again this year.

As ever please check out the BHHS website for the daylily events in 2018 and I do hope we will get to see some of you here this year, we really enjoy showing everybody the display and chatting daylilies . Our opening times are as follows:-

Saturday June 16th to Sunday August 12th 2018.
10am to 5pm at weekends.
Weekday afternoons 2pm to 5-30pm excluding Mondays.
Or any time by appointment.
