Hi April,
One plus one equals $10,000 ? ! ? is a wonderful article! Thank you for writing it.

I am a homeschooling mom with 3 active sons who often putter around the yard with me as I plant and transplant, but vanish when I say the word "weeding"!! I've often thought it would be a fun science project for us to learn how to hybridize a plant, but I had no idea it is done, which plants to use, or how difficult it is. Having read this article, I am inspired to try it with my boys this spring. Could you please suggest some books that I can begin reading now to get acquainted with the process and tell me if some daylilies are easier to work with than others, and if so, which plants to try.

I appreciate any help you can offer.

Thank you,

More power to you for homeschooling and doing it right!!!

One of my sisters homeschooled and her (now grown) kids are doing great in the world.

I'm really not sure about any books, but I would like to suggest DavesGarden and the many, many forums with kind people that will guide you along the way. Join DG if you aren;t already a member. You and your children can learn a lot her at DG.

It seems like Daylilies are one of the easier plants; some plants are quite difficult.

If you d-mail Lisa, she has lesson plans that she may share. I don't know if she charges.

I'm not the expert; just the one blessed to be able to write about the expert!


Thanks for reading and commenting.
