    my husbands brand new company and I need some people to just check out the website and give some feedback. I'm not trying to sell anything, but you can order from the site

    My husband was in a job that he hated for years. I finally convinced him that life is too short to be miserable for most of the day. He quit his job last spring and took some time to decide what he wanted to be when he grows up. He decided to start a plant nursery and since we already had a pretty good collection of unique daylilies, he thought he'd start from there. I'm hoping he'll let me sell chicks or hatching eggs from the site eventually!

    Let me know what you think.

    Congratulations and best wishes with your new business. We love daylilies, and I think it's terrific that love of a plant can lead to a whole new direction in life. Your site looks efficient. I tried only one lead, but it worked well. I know you'll add pictures of plants that do not now have photos. Empty frames will inhibit interest in those plants, but not for long, I'm sure! And...your interest in chickens should fit right in to a business based on nature and farming and add interest to the catalog and nursery. I can already see a charming little coop of a welcoming trio of Banties greeting visitors each spring, surrounded by beds of vari-colored daylilies. Way to go! ~G

    Nice! You need pics on your home page though [​IMG]

    Soooo- how big of a bunch do you get? I can never have enough colors! I buy them, grow them, split them, and sell extras. I hate it when you buy them though and the plants are just a tiny sprig. Ya know what I mean?

    DH says any of the "dormant" varieties will do well in your area (the word dormant will be in the description of the flower) one of the big supplies he purchased from actually just relocated all of their lilies from NH to NC, so they could have varieties. DH does plan to propigate new strains of lilies with a more northern climate in mind.​

    Quote:DH just informed me that you get two fans when you order. The size of the fans depend on the variety of the lily
