Hi, I'm new to the board & have a quick question. Can daylilies be dug up and stored for re-planting next season? Like you would to a Gladiolus up here in the northeast. I know they don't need to be, but I needed to move some due to some new construction on the house & I want to know if I "have to" replant now, or can I store in a cool, dry place until spring? Any help would be appreciated.
Thx, John

Yes, you can dig them up and store them, or you could plant them in pots until you're ready to plant them back in the ground next year.

When you pot them do you keep them inside or outside?

OUTSIDE, in the snow, cold and freezing temps..
It's Buffalo here for gosh sakes.... eek eek eek eek wink laugh
They got snow already and it's only the middle of
October..

Honestly, they're a hardy breed..
If you just put them in a pot, fill them with
plain ordinary garden soil, *I wouldn't do those bagged soils, they're too rich for them* and maybe some mulched/chopped up leaves around the base of the pot and put under a big tree canopy or by something to maybe block the wind..
but mine are out and they've faired nicely...
