August IS upon us!!

-- which means that ... it's time to enjoy the end of the Mid-to-Late bloomers, and welcome in the LATE and the Late-Late bloomers = the varieties of daylilies that extend your Season Color well into September -- and one = Charleston Autumn Moonlight - usually blooms into October!!

Look at the stack of Navigation Bars on the LEFT of this homepage; and go down to #4; if you click on it you'll see several Lates = the "Charleston Harvest" names; and the LATE-LATES = the "Charleston Autumn" names. They give you a beautiful array of color that doesn't even START until August, each year.

Jim and I will be in Maine at a Daylily Conference during this coming weekend = Aug 12th and Aug 13th - and our dear friends Nancy and Mel Voss will be sitting in for us At The Farm. Rumor has it that more great friends, Jacquie and Tim Schweighart, may show up to help, as well. So, please come down and say hello to them all, and let them show you the gorgeous LATES that are in bloom now - for YOUR garden.

Our REGULAR Biz Hours are 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays - BUT - if you can only come down During The Week, JUST CALL ME at 217-621-8474, before you come down to The Farm - and I'll do my VERY BEST to meet your needs, and be here to help you see and enjoy our Beauties = NOT A PROBLEM; just please try to call ahead, just to make sure we're HERE, and not In Town, running necessary errands, etc. We'd be delighted to see you and have you visit as a WeekDay Garden Guest.

We are located 5 miles South of Philo - or 4.5 miles North of Villa Grove, just off Rt 130 about 1/8 of a mile; just watch for the Blue Tourist Attraction Sign, to show you where to turn off Rt. 130.

Hope to see you soon = and The Sooner, The Better!!


Here's HOW TO SEARCH FOR LOVELIES,on-line: On this HOME PAGE, on the Left Side, there's a STACK of Navigation Bars : there you'll find FIVE major groupings of Daylilies for you to review and enjoy: FIRST is a full collection of all of Ron Valente's gorgeous Hybrids; NEXT is a grouping of 200-300 hundred of our Favorite Cultivars; NEXT is all of Jimmy's Hybrids; NEXT is all of Dr. Wes Whiteside Hybrids; and LAST is a NEW GROUPING of 50+ OTHER Favorites that we've not posted on the WebSite -- UNTIL NOW. So ... do ENJOY these Beauties, too!!

AND -- you can ALSO search for Plants by WHATEVER TERM YOU wish; you don't need any Magic Codes at all.

TO START: just click on the SEARCH STARTS HERE! navigation bar, to creat a customized, personal search.

You can search By Color = just enter whatever color you wish to see, like RED or WHITE or PEACH

- or you can search By Height = just enter the height you want to find, like 18 or 26 or 40

- or maybe even search By BloomTime = just enter the time of Season during which you want the flowers to bloom, like EARLY (June/July) or MID (July/August) or LATE or Late-Late (August/September = No "magic words" are necessary, at all.

So ... just go ahead and JUMP IN = take a stroll through about 400+ lovelies that are each and all available to you for the asking -- WHILE THEY LAST = there are MANY cultivars that are available ONLY in somewhat limited quantities = so PLEASE do not hesitate to reserve ANY BEAUTIES who Speak To YOU!!

You may place your Own Custom Order on the Purchase Page -- OR -- you make up your list - and e-send it to me -- OR, if you'd rather, just CALL ME (217-621-8474) with your list, and we'll Talk Through your order on the phone;

Either way, I'll verify whether or not all your choices are available - and I'll provide you with your SALE TOTAL due; then, you can send me off a check -- and you can receive your Lovelies within the next week, or so - by visiting The Farm to pick them up.

We will not be shipping out, vis USPS, until September - when the weather generally cools of, once again.

AND - please recall: Jimmy and I are available to present Educational Daylily Programs for your Green Group meetings: we'd love to help you out! Just call me at 217-621-8474! These sort of Get-Togethers are so very enjoyable for EVERYone involved ... learning new things, and sharing personal gardening experiences and tips. Thank Heavens that we are TRULY addicted to it all = What FUN!!
