I just bought a whole bunch of lilies from Buggycrazy on Lily Auction.
Does anyone have any experience with her?
Her feedback was good and the prices seemed very good also.
We'll see. I'll let you know.

Here's what I got - all were sold in Dutch Auction format.

(#1099239970) ROYAL FANTASY, LA hybrid Lily 3@$2.00 $6

(#1099511625) LATE PINK ORIENTAL LILY 3@$3.00 =$9

I bought a lot of my Pixies and some odds & ends from her this fall. Also some dwarf iris as well. I was very happy with the bulbs (size & condition). Have to wait til next year to comment on whether they are all accurate, but I'm not really concerned.

She seems to have a very extensive listing of bulbs. I was looking just last night and some of her newest listings and saw a few I'd like to get, but had to talk myself out of them. It's just getting too late to plant for these achy arthritic bones of mine.

I couldn't stop myself... I ordered more! What's even more tempting is that she lives under 2 hours from where I do! FYI, she's no longer selling on ebay anymore and will be doing the lilyauction and another auction. I noticed that she now has a "voodoo lily". Anyone brave enough to order one of those? I would if I had a very long field to plant it in and could put it at the very end so I wouldn't have to smell it. Cool looking flower though.

I don't know that she is moving there, but she said she is renting some land from a farm in Lacomb because the soil there is better...more sand. She said she was trying to sell cut flower quality to the florists around here, but they weren't buying.

LOL! You're welcome to stop by whenever you want. A lot of the asiatic lilies I have now are in 1-gallon containers until I get around to amending the yucky clay soil in my beds. Some of the bulbs were so big, I put them in 2-gallon containers. That bed gets full sun until about 5pm so maybe not the best bed to plant them in. Anyone had luck planting them in areas with intense sun? The raised bed is right next to a sidewalk as well.

Mendy,
Sure, that'd be great! I've tried to plan and plant my beds so starting feb/march, I'll have blooms non-stop until next years frost.

Buggycrazy has pretty of auctions still going. Besides asiatic lilies, she's also selling large clumps of calla lilies for $5. I just about fell over when I saw how many rhyzomes were in each clump. Instead of trying to overwinter them inside, I've planted them (7 clumps total) inside. The first "clump" I got about 2 months ago and the plants are close to 2 feet tall already :).

I'd love to join all you addicts, but my ground is hard as a rock! Anyway, between my summer purchases & Dg trades, I don't think I have anymore room in my beds. Sigh. Guess I'll just have to widen them (again!) and move the daylilies/iris out of the back rows into the new front rows. Da Da! More room for lilies!! And maybe some dwarf lilies in the front rows???

I'm extending my vegi garden area so I can plant a nice, fat row of asiatic lilies there. I...umm... ordered more bulbs last night. She may be posting more in the next couple of the days too. What lilies I don't have room for I'm just going to grow in 1 or 2 gallon sized pots. I've already potted up a bunch of them, and some are large, they were just about as wide as the 1-gallon container!

Emily, yep those are the ones I have. I had soooo many bouquets of them this summer...seems like I was always out there cutting them. The clump I have started out as a tiny cutting I took from our last apartment. I have had it for 71/2 years now and have never divided it!

I'm sure I'll have enough to go around if any of you other ladies would like some.

Wanda, I'm glad you said that about widening your beds and moving things to the front. I have thought about that, but was always afraid things wouldn't do well if I moved them. You don't have any problem with shock and things not blooming do you? I keep dreaming of all the grass I want to tear out to widen my beds, but I don't know how much longer we are going to be at this house. We really need to move and get a bigger place...I would hate to put a lot of money into stuff and then move.

Tazzy, please explain about potting up bulbs? Do you mean that I could pot them up, put in a cool place like my unheated dark fruit cellar and then plant out in the spring?

MGH, I would like some in the spring of your giant calla lilies.
What do you wish in trade?

When you dig and transplant your plants try soaking them in Miracle-Gro quick start transplant solution.
I always pour some this mixed up in and around the plant when I recd. order from nursery or other people.
Hope this helps. You very seldom lose a plant this way.

Mendy, just saw your post. I'm forever moving things, it seems! My flowerbeds are a constant work in process...

When we built this house , the only flowerbeds were 3 foot wide all around it. The beds kept creeping out & out as I added things and are now 10-12 wide on all four sides of the house.

My first beds in the backyard were narrow too since I had a dog who liked to dig & I didn't want to tempt her too much. And puppies to help her. They dug up a young tree one afternoon & dragged it to the back door! As our dogs got older, I got braver & extended my beds all around the back yard along the fence.

Two years ago, we got Walker the Wonderdog --as in "I wonder what he will destroy next?" Lots of pulled up garden stakes & broken iris/daylily scapes followed. This summer was better & I keep hoping he'll settle down sooner or later...

Wanda,

Thanks for your reply. I have a feeling I am going to be moving things quite a bit this year! My flowerbeds around the front and one side of the house are about 3-4ft wide. I have thought about widening but haven't done it yet. My beds are edged with bricks so it makes it harder to widen them. (My bright idea a few years ago...not such a bright idea now!) I think I'll wait till we get a bigger place before I put too much more money in the ground though.

I think your Walker the Wonderdog and my Maggie the Monsterdog should get together sometime. Oooohhhh, the trouble those two could get into together!!! Last year Maggie tried to dig up a tree...a very large old Willow in our front yard. She dug down about 3ft. on one side of the trunk. Needless to say we moved her tie-out cable after that! She doesn't dig anymore unless we go to the beach.

Tazzy, I've got a question about your comment above:
[quote]yes just pot and water just alittle and stick in cellar if thy get bone dry just give them a sip DO NOT SOAK OR WATER ANY WITH OUT BONE DRY .YOU can also put in peat moss or buckets of sand STERLIZE SAND[/quote]

Is this for storage, or will they grow roots? I'm afraid I'm going to have to store the ones I bought last night, the weather man said this morning that we are going to have a few days of rain/snow mix then freezing temps. Can I just put all 15 bulbs into one 5 gallon bucket with peat or potting soil and put in the root cellar? Or will I need to pot separately?

Thanks!

Hey--stole away from my duties for a moment to breathe the fresh air of Dave's Garden. Our college daughter , high school daughter & DH are fightingover the computer all the time. I got Netzero for my DD laptop, but she prefers this fast DSL. Naturally. Younger daughter says she's doing homework, but is busy with 3-5 IMs at a time. More flirting than homework getting done.

My DH likes to unwind on the puter after 12 hours as Cardiac Intensive care Nurse--or anytime he's not out hunting. Need to get that man out of the house before I go CRAZY!!!!!

Lots to do at work right now. Rushing to get final orders framed & shipped for Hannakuh & Christmas. I do all the bookkeepping & taxes, so I'm getting all the corporation affairs in order so I won't have to spend 1/2 January doing tax figures.

I usually rest between Christmas & New Years, but DH has decided we need to re-paint living room before we re-carpet. Translated--WANDA WILL PAINT since my DH sling paint up to 10 feet from the designated area. I think he is just bored--no one to hunt with.

Then there's presents to wrap, house to clean, goodies to bake, packages to ship to DG friends. Lots to get done right now.

Oh my gosh, Wanda. Do you have any down time? Planning on sleeping any? With all that you have planned, wonder when?

Well, I am curtailed for working and lifting and believe me, you don't want this life!
I am BORED out of my ever living skull. Now I go around like our granddaughter used to to bug us, saying I am BORED, BORRRRREEDDDDDDD. Now shes too busy as she graduated this spring.

Hope all of you have all of your Xmas shopping, decorating and baking done. I had a real treat here. My DH baked cookies [first time in his life] last week. I had purchased a tub of sugar cookie dough from the local grocery store. Pretty good too. Our boys said, its about time, Dad. They were taught to cook, bake and clean. When baking they got to eat as many cookies as they wished.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and a JOYOUS NEW YEAR. I have so enjoyed meeting you all over the air waves.

My first daughter said "Where are the candycanes?" My second daughter walked in and said sarcastically "Couldn't Dad find a bigger tree?" And my husband asked "When's supper?" EEEEEKKKKK!!!!!!

UH OH! Peeking in on my bulbs I have in 1 gallon pots in my basement, I was alarmed to find 2 of them are up! We're talking 3 inches up! Holy cow. If I put them outside, will it be too much of a shock to them as my basement is in the low 60's and it's in the 30's outside. I completely forgot to put them outside after I potted them. What's funny is that "tropical dream" has two stalks up, but I only planted one bulb. Any ideas?

FYI - Buggycrazy is offering her lily bulbs at a pretty steep discount right now on Lily Auction and Blooming Auction. 10 Orientals for $12 and 12 Asiatics and LAs for $10. These are the same bulbs we've been paying $2-3 each for and thinking it was a great deal. If you do buy them, you can specify which color ranges you would like so, even though it's a mixed bag offer, you can pretty much dictate what you want. Guess how I know this???

But the bulbs are so huge! So much larger than I would ever get at any local nuseries and cheaper too (that's what I keep telling myself). This is what my kitchen counter looks like: http://www.q7.com/~erasmus/images/house_dec_04/calla_monstrosity.JPG That's 5 of the 7 bunches I have growing inside. Tallest leaf is now 40". I can't believe how much they have grown with how short our days are up here. It's pitch black outside by 4:30pm and they're all in north-facing windows.

I wish Buggycrazy had more colors available. Anyone know of any good sites for buying colored callas at a reasonable price?

They were mixed, no labels except to identify as Asiatic or Oriental. I did get to specify which colors I wanted though, and she sent those. These bulbs were ones that she was selling at a farmer's market and I guess they were the leftovers (although it's hard to believe because of the size of them.) She said she didn't want to have to plant them again - I guess that's why I got so many!

I got them all planted today, practically burning out my drill in the process. I was planning to till up a new bed today but my tiller wouldn't start. I took it to a tool fix-it guy and ended up with his catalog for professional lawn care tools.
Inside was the biggest, most beautiful, gas-powered auger you can imagine.
You can get a 10" auger blade (bit, whatever you call it) for this baby. WANT.

I talk to all my flowers in bloom to help me remember names. That helps when Walker tears up the name stakes & I have to find the right clump again. I don't talk to Walker--I just yell at him alot.

Walker doesn't "talk", but he whines alot. And he growls if you try to move him off your lap when he's sleeping. The little poophead is in Nepbraska with DH earning his keep this weekend. It gives me some pleasure to know they are hunting in deep snow and below zero temps. He'll be tired & behave well for a few days after he gets back... Demon Dog aka Walker the Wonder Dog.

Do you mean a shock collar or an electric fence? My business partner laid down an electric fence wire to keep his cats in his yard and out of the flowerbeds. It delivers a warning, then light shock via a collar the animal wears all the time.

Our dog shock collar is only worn for training & carefully. The shock can make Walker jump into the air. If it is used too much, it can ruin a dog. When Walker tore a hole out of the front of the couch and tore off part of the wood frame under it, he went too far. We put his nose against the destruction and gave him a shock. Normally, the collar is only used when he is hunting & decides to chase a deer or rabbit or runs off. If I catch him lifting his leg on Lizzie's bedspread again...

I understand what you are saying. They can be dnagerous in the wrong hands and hurt a dog mentally and physically. We have no fencing, but I have considered using a shock collar to reinforce to them that they should not lay down in my beds. I had thought of the kind that will only shock when you tell it to. (NOT a barking collar which I think is mean.) I would only want to do a very light shock. Just a warning that they are wrong that I could back up with a verbal no no. I am not aware of one that works together with a fence.

Lots of people use the "invisible fence" for pets. You lay a wire down along your property lines or on the edge of your garden. Your animal wears a collar with a reciever in it. When they get within 3 foot of the fence, they get a buzz from their collar. If they proceed, they get a shock from the collar. You can bury the "fence" under your grass & keep your pet in a confined area . An invisible fence can keep pets in your yard in neighborhoods that don't allow real fences. a negative factor is that an animal without the shock collar can come right in and back out again to harrass your pet.

So, I bought another "10 mixed oriental lily bulbs" from Buggycrazy, and, just like last time, she sent me 30 HUGE bulbs. This time, I was prepared.
For those of you following along with my power tool lust mentioned earlier in this thread, I asked for, and received for my birthday, a gas-fired power augur. No more bendy drill bits for this crazy lady.

So, the very first day I had it, I decided I had to plant a bunch of perennials I got from Buggycrazy and these 30 bulbs. I attached the 10" blade (also got a 6" blade) to the augur and let 'er rip. Wow. I don't get the opportunity to use the word "torque" very often, but this is the perfect opportunity. That augur ripped through the clay so fast, making the most excellent 10" diameter holes (for the perennials - 6" holes, later, for the bulbs). I "dug" eighteen holes in about 10 minutes, each at least a foot to a foot-and-a-half deep. Now, in our Carolina clay, that's saying something. It usually takes me fifteen minutes of digging, interspersed with at least fifteen minutes of resting, to dig one hole. The bulb holes were even faster, with the 30 taking about 10 minutes.

The only problem is that the augur is really heavy, esp. with the 10" blade covered with clay. I wrenched my back a bit and have been hobbling around and taking Alleve since. But what bliss! I'll be back at it this weekend.

Yea for Ivory!!! I'm so glad for you! I just love my auger, but I would love it more if I had a gas powered drill! That's really cool. My auger gets really heavy with all the clay on it too. I think it's funny to spin the auger after I've dug the hole an watch all the clay go flying! Be careful with your back...hope it feels better soon.

When I was doing the digging by hand, I would have to add in another 15 minutes for swearing at the darn clay!! LOL!

So when ivory said to check out the daylily forum I thought she meant this forum. Then when you mentioned it again, it made me stop and take a look to see if there was a different forum called daylilys. Thanks for helping me see this. But a quick question is, what is the difference between a lily and a daylily?

a daylily or hemorocallis is a perennial and comes from a rhizome, they grow in 'fans' of leaves, and the blooms are on a leafless stalk, and the flower lasts only 1 day. thus 'day'lily. a lily or lilium grows from a bulb. it has one stalk of flowers with the leaves and blossoms all on the one stalk. the blooms last for up to a week or more. there are different types of lilies such as asiatic, oriental, orienpet, trumpet, asiapet, and species lilies.
this is just an amateurs description. i hope it helps a bit.

oh jessek, you can get daylilies for only a few dollars for 2 fans. people often have them for sase in the plant trading forum. there are also several flowers on a stem of daylilies and more stems as the plant gets larger. some of them even rebloom and ones like stella dora are termed everbloomers and bloom all summer long.
there are also lilies that sell for $30+ a bulb or 50 a bulb.

i like lilies better myself, but i have daylilies in my gardens too and i really enjoy them.

a DIVISION:

1.) Refers to an individual unit in a clump, each portion of which is identical to the parent plant. Also see: Fan, Ramet.
2.) The process of breaking a multifan clump of daylilies into several individual plants. Each plant can be termed a division

i got the above definition from this web page and there is also a picture there for you to view.

http://www.daylilies.org/ahs_dictionary/division.html

i think with daylilies that the leaves look like a fan too.

Debi, I see that you have some supports for your lilies. This is my first year growing them and I am just wondering if I will need to get some of those?

well it depends on the lily and where you have it planted. i find the ones i have planted in shade and part shade tend to need a support more than ones grown in full sun. also, taller ones tend to need support from wind. of course if you plant them near schrubs they will use them as a natural support.
i bought mine at a discout store here called east coast marketplace, or ocean state job lots. they were inexpensive and they work well. i've seen them for much costlier prices in gardening catalogues. also, you can use bamboo, some folks use coat hangers they fashion into plant stakes, or whatever works for you.

Something I use on occasion are those cheap, green bamboo sticks available at garden centers and green florists tape.

Makes a handy "splint" too, if a stem has been injured but not completely broken.

Thanks for some good info, Debi_z and Moby...

I could have used that splint idea a couple of times last year. I will sure remember it now.

LOL! Me too. When I saw the name "Rose Moss", I immediatly thought of what's living all over my front lawn. Rose moss (Portulaca grandiflora). Pretty plants. Might have to try some this year.

DG does that to us all--addicts us to new garden plants and makes us drool.

I had been wondering whether it is safe to order from BuggyCrazy with her rabid rant on her website, and some Buggy Fans found this old thread for us newcomers to buggycrazy-land!

Order away, her bulbs are the best as always. Both my fall narcissus order and lily bulb orders were terrific as was her communication. Patti

Every bulb I've bought from her bloomed true. Can't say that of many growers.

I've got a moss rose blooming in the middle of my yard! how the devil did it get there? I don;'t havee any & neither do my close neighbors. Bird droppings?
