I have several Asiatic Lilies ... I think. They're the one's that get the little black seeds in the crook of the leaves. How can I tell when it's time to take the seeds to plant else where? I have tried in the past but haven't had much luck.

I think the lilies you have are tiger lilies, or turk's cap lilies. Try googling pics. If they are tiger lilies, those black things on the leave axle (where leave meets stem) are bulblets, or tiny bulbs. You can pick them off and plant them. The first year, you will only see a leave. The second year, they will develop a stem. The third year the stem will continue to grow and if you'r elucky you'll have a bloom

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

Do ur Lilys look like this [Linked Image]
if so u can select two parent lilys in color range u like to mix,
Collect the pollen from daylily with a cotton swab and apply it to the stamens of the other lily and tag the pollinated one with a twist tie
Once the daylily flowers and forms a seed pod that opens collect seeds that are black shiny and plump store in a freezer bag in refrigerator for 6 to 8 weeks Sow the seeds in containers filled with potting soil in a sunny location keep watered transplant seedings to selected location
