Attention Daylily Lovers

Hello Garden Club Members

Year 2011 in the garden is just around the corner. Canyon Ridge Daylily Farm's website has been updated for the 2011 season with many new, exciting cultivars to choose from, loads of daylily information, and beautiful photos taken at the farm. We have a great number of daylilies that are hardy for northern gardening.

All Garden Club Members receive a 10% discount on their orders, (order total is before shipping charges are added, if applicable).  When ordering, please note on the order form the name of your Garden Club and City or Town.

Please also note that we are completely Tax Free, a great savings for you!

Looking forward to a new and enjoyable gardening season.

Lynne Cherot & Chris Boulanger

Browsing through seed/plant catalogues helps to keep us gardeners sane through January.  Enjoy these online plus check out the 'real thing' at the Magazine Swap Table during our January Meeting.   I plan to add my catalogues to the Magazine Swap Table and encourage you to do the same.
