I use the Watchdog a lot to check out sellers/gardens before I purchase. The Happy Moose garden has been renamed and as far as I can tell the new name hasn't been added to the Watchdog. The previous name has several negative reports and I don't want to order from them if the situation is basically like it was. There are a few I'd love to have but I don't want to go through a hassle to buy. I know this is a touchy subject but if someone knows anything that would save us (and some new buyers) from a bad experience, please do. If you don't want to post on here, please send me a D-Mail. Thanks for your help.

Hmmmm, I didn't know his garden was renamed. That's news to me and yes I had also heard of problems ordering. I do know he has been selling on the Lily Auction but haven't heard anything else at the moment.

Yea, hes now NCdaylilies, or something like that. He has good intentions and has kept it going thru either two or three moves. I would try to contact him, just to answer a random question, If he responds, then your probably good to order. His problem isnt his plants, its his ability to balance relationships with daylilies, in reguards to time. Well, thats my opinion. Ill tree mail leslie and see hat she knows, She used to be close with him, daylily wise.

He has been posting regularly on the Facebook group that was mentioned in another thread. People there have been thanking him for their plants so presumably things are going well. He also has a few plants listed at discounts in that group.

I just bought Redefining Genetics (on sale and sent extra fans) from him after seeing his postings on FB. He also sent a new introduction as a bonus. I had ordered from him a few years ago and was pleased. I have read about his ups and downs and have been cautious about buying from him for that reason. I have been pleased with what he has sent each time. It seems that he goes through both good and bad periods in his life. Right now "seems" to be a good period. Wish this would be permanent as he has lots to contribute to the daylily world through his work with polys.

Pam, he posted on the Email Robin that he had a sale on certain daylilies and listed the prices. I contacted him at his email address listed on his new website. He has recently listed daylilies for sale on Facebook's Trade, Buy, and Sell. I'd like a few more but better not.

Hi Friends,

Thank you for your kind words in regard to my new garden, the plants, and my shipping this year.

2012, has been a year of restructuring and my new "Daylilies of North Carolina" business has been extremely successful in the customer care arena. I am the sole proprietor of the business now so there are no outside influences with the new garden. I am also very proud of the flowers that I introduced in 2012 and for spring 2013.

Pam, you must have gone to my old website. The new website for Daylilies of North Carolina is http://daylily.net I believe the plant you are looking for is SWIM BIKE RUN which one of my 2012 introductions and is near the bottom of my homepage. The direct link to the cultivar page is http://daylily.net/nc_introductions/swim_bike_run.htm where I have 14 pictures of it which are all clickable for full-screen viewing.

Here is additional information that I posted about SWIM BIKE RUN on the polymerous forum yesterday that does not appear on my website yet: "I just keep discovering great things about SWIM BIKE RUN. I had seeds from it in the crisper for 3 to 8 weeks. Soaked the seeds in cups of water/hydrogen peroxide for seven days. I had 100% germination/seed sprouting in the cups. Planted all the seeds directly in the ground today."

This flower is FRACTURED SYMMETRY, but the reason I am posting it is that you can see the big blooms of SWIM BIKE RUN.

If you look at this picture at full size then can see the clump of SWIM BIKE RUN in the background along the right edge of the image. I think that this picture shows, very nicely, the impact and presence of SWIM BIKE RUN in the garden.

You all "make" me want to move south! We've already had a frost here in NW Ohio!
SPRING, COME FAST!!!
In years past, I bought the Journal but due to health issues, medical bills etc., I no longer get them.
It would be nice to see it on line but I doubt that is available. Does anyone know?
I can't buy more plants now but I had fun going to "Bobby's" website to see his plants.
I like COURAGE AND DETERMINATION or something like that...I should have written down the correct name. After going through breast cancer, I think that would be a good one to own. But I will have to wait for another season, if God so wills.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello everyone, just starting out with daylilies. Well I have been shopping for about three months and everything seems to come in the mail at the same time. Sure have been busy. Just got my first issue of Daylily Journal.

DaylilyOma, I will mail you my copy when I am done reading it. Also the AHS has a free download of the Journal in a PDF format but you have to be a member to get it.
After June 30 you can get a trial membership for 15.00 and two free issues of the Journal.

Virginiarose you are soooo kind. I personally know what you mean about everything arriving around the same time. It can be overwhelming at times.
I spoke too soon above. While wandering in the garden yesterday I saw a up and coming scape on "Chief Four Fingers".

Im just so glad I could get them before the spring. Give them sometime to get happy before making me some pollen, or maybe a pod. I try not to make pods the first year. Just depends on the plant.

What I really need is a poly tet with some good pollen. Any suggestions. One that would help make a white would be even better. Id love to introduce some sculpting and some teeth. Things is, I would have to go out of the poly world, or I think I would. As you posted elsewhere, time does become the enemy.

Virginarose, have fun in your daylily adventures. It will become an addiction, but a good one. I always say there are worse things I could be addicted to.

Daylilyoma, I wish you well, and will keep you in thoughts and prayers. God willing, you will have plenty of years ahead of you to enjoy daylilies and other things. Hopefully you can get an AHS membership again soon.

Very nice, virginiarose! I have ordered from Maryott's myself in the past, and yes, they send great plants. Another good place to order from is Brown's Ferry Gardens. And I have also gotten great plants from Jim Murphy and Margo Reed at Woodhenge Gardens. I love their daylilies.

A friend buys a lot from Sterrett in Virginia and another place in NY, whose name escapes me right now.
