Michelle Potting

Michelle potting daylies for our inventory.

Michelle Bingham has always had a passion for flowers and gardening. At a very early age she could be found landscaping her yard, always rearranging her flower beds, trying to express her creativity. Her yard was her canvas. Bicycling had always been a passion of Michelle’s as well. Many miles ridden on the back county roads of Lancaster County Pa. led Michelle to realize that Daylilies were the essence of summer! Their beauty was more and more evident as the temperatures rose and days became longer. She was so excited to discover the hybridized “Stella de Oro” daylily. That was the first hybridized daylily to be introduced to her garden. A few trips to the local gardening center led to discovering other hybridized daylilies.

"Stella de Oro"

She was so excited to discover the hybridized “Stella de Oro” daylily. That was the first hybridized daylily to be introduced to her garden. A few trips to the local gardening center led to discovering other hybridized daylilies. One summer day in 2007, while shopping at her local garden center, Michelle picked up a flyer for the owners open house tour of his daylily and hosta garden! Her world has never been the same! So many varieties of daylilies in his garden! Who knew! And he was selling them! On that first visit, Michelle and her partner, Denise Freeman, purchased the hybridized cultivars, “Mary’s Gold” and “South Seas”. That first visit to a daylily garden led to repeat visits summer after summer to purchase more hybridized daylilies, plus many trips to other daylily gardens in the state of Pennsylvania.

Although Denise never had a green thumb, she has always had a deep love and appreciation for the beauty of a peaceful, vibrant garden filled with colorful blooms. Dee has a background in Architectural Design and Drafting so she has a keen eye for designing a practical and pleasing environment. Coupled with Michelle's many years of fine art experience with color and style, they have developed a very visually pleasing garden that is fairly easy to maintain. Daylilies come in such a wide variety of colors and shapes, that it is easy for even a novice gardener like Denise to create beautiful color-filled blower beds. And when it comes to having a brown thumb, even the brownest of thumbs can grow Daylilies! They are such a hearty plant, you can almost ignore them completely and they will grow and flourish, although their beauty is almost impossible to ignore. We must warn you, gardening with Daylilies can become addicting! Even Dee found herself out there checking the garden every morning before work and every afternoon when she got home.................just walking around the flower beds, looking at the new blooms for that day and the next thing you knew, she just had to start "dead-heading" the previous days blooms (hence the term dead-heading), but the plants just look so much more alive and vibrant when the wilted blooms are removed! Plus, it's just a fun way to enjoy each new bloom and to take notice of all the little visitors that Mother Nature sends to the garden. A flower garden is so full of activity, that is truly is one of lift's little miracles.
