                              SPRING IS ALMOST HERE !!!

     Yes, though we are hardy Western New Yorkers use to dealing with the snow,  even we are tired of the cold.  It's been the coldest we remembered for a while, and the past couple years of warm early Spring temperatures spoiled us a bit; this is an area where we can get snow on Mothers Day. 
     Yet this is the time of the year where those who enjoy the outdoors in general, and gardening in particular, start getting restless with being inside.  And then the new seed and flower catalogs start arriving, and it just adds to the situation.
     For us, winter is the time though where we start planning for the upcoming season.  We attend various seminars around the US and Canada, meet with other hybridizers and growers, to see the 'Latest and Greatest' from the world of daylilies.  We also use this time to plan our acquisitions for the coming year, and we want to share some of what you will see when you visit us this season.
     If you look on the above menu bar, you will see 'New Display Daylilies For 2014'; these are just some of the new varieties we will be growing this year.  Although they will not be available for sale until 2015 at the earliest, it gives you an idea of the selection you can find when looking at daylilies as your perennial of choice.  We will also be using the genetics of these plants in our own hybridizing program.
     We want to thank the American Hemerocallis Society, who makes their online database available to visitors, and the pictures you see are from their site.  We will be excited to see how well these new selections will perform here in our region, and how true they will be to the AHS image, as daylilies can present themselves with some variation in different regions of the country.  Normally, when we post images of our catalog, they are taken here in our garden, and we will always specify if the image is from a different source.  If you wish to view all 75,000 or so of current daylily cultivars, you can find the link to that database farther down this page.
     Our Nursery will be opening for the season in May, and the Gardens will be open in June; although we are available year round by appointment, feel free to contact us with any questions.  This year you will find the addition of several new beds, as we move our hybridizing program to another part of the nursery, and develop new beds for lined out plants, many previous display plants which will now be available for purchase.  Visit our website often, as we will be posting images of those daylilies now available for sale in 2014; and we are almost finished completing our first edition of our 2014 catalog and pricelist, which will be posted very soon.
     We would like to thank all our visitors from last and previous years, and promise an even better experience when you visit this year;  we are your source for daylilies which are not only unique and varied, but will perform well for you in your own garden.
     As many of our past visitors will attest, you really need to visit at least three times in a season; June to see Early Bloom, July for Peak Bloom, and August/September to see Late Bloom.  This year we will be offering over 1400 AHS registered daylilies for sale or display, with hundreds of seedlings, many a result of our own hybridizing program, and others from selected hybridizers.  As a result, we are looking forward to registering our first cultivars this year.
    So while we still contend with winter,  allow us to give you a little taste of Spring and Summer with the assorted images on the following pages, including the 2014 Display Daylilies.  If your only experience with daylilies is what you've seen at the local nursery, big box, or growing wild on the roadside...you are in for a revelation!
     Even though we have been growing daylilies since 2006, opening to the public in 2009, we are still amazed by the beauty and variety of bloom daylilies offer to the casual or avid gardener.  From 1.75" Minis to 13" Unusual Forms, daylilies are a perennial which always put on a great display.

 We are currently scheduling 2014 speaking engagements for groups and clubs.  We can either come to your venue, or we can host you here in the gardens.  We offer a varied selection of program which can accommodate the needs of your organization; contact us for details, openings are limited.

            *****PHOTOGRAPHERS  AND  ARTISTS  WELCOME*****

If you are an amateur or professional photographer or artist, we offer an excellent venue for still life subjects or portrait scenes.  You are welcome to stroll our gardens during regular hours, or call us if you have a special circumstance which requires a different time.

**********************************************************************

     Our Country Farm Garden is located in Orchard Park, New York, and is adjacent to US Route 219, a Scenic Byway, and easily accessible by major highways.  Our six acre property is easy walking for all ages, and we can accommodate parking for any type of vehicle from bicycle to bus.  Groups are welcome with advance notice.  

      We are available for speaking engagements and presentations, and are currently booking dates for 2014. Due to the nature of our business, available dates are limited; so contact us early to reserve a date for your group or club.   Please note that we can come to you, or your club is always welcome to visit us for either a garden walk, a presentation, or a combination of both.                                         
                                                                                                                                                                For 2014 we will be featuring over 1400 AHS cultivars and hundreds of seedlings.  We are a NYS licensed and inspected nursery, also featuring a gift shoppe.  For 2014 we will also have our own naturally homegrown produce available on site, available in season.

    If you have visited us in the past, and still have your catalog marked with your favorites that were only on display, it is likely that your wait is over since we are making hundreds more display plants available for sale.  If you have had your eye on that special daylily, contact us soon so we can make arrangements to hold that plant on "layaway", since on many, quantities will be limited.  The same holds for new customers viewing our current catalog.  If you see any flower marked with a "DISP", contact us as to availability and price, as we may have those cultivars available later in the season.
                                                                                                                                                         As always, we appreciate your patience, as the website is always a work in progress, and we are working to convert from a static site, to an interactive catalog and order system.  And also remember, we love to share our passion and knowledge; please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.

We look forward to your visit.
