Nursery Adema Daglelies
After I had planted several types of daylilies in my backyard, it quickly turned out to be too small.
Finally, you also want other plants in the garden. I then started looking for more land where I could further expand my hobby.
I found this at the Amateur Gardeners Association de Wrottersploech in Drachten.
There was still a lot of land available on this large complex with more than 300 members.
Together with my father-in-law, we rented a plot of 4 acres and built a garden shed.
We each had 2 ares, but soon I started using my father-in-law's piece.
I soon ran out of land and my father-in-law was also satisfied with one acre. The garden was full of daylilies.
After a few years this number was expanded and I also had a lot of plants to trade or sell.
These plants also came into pots, firstly because I ran out of soil and secondly, it was so easy to sell them and take them with me.
to take to garden fairs or flower markets.
In 2007 I was a number of times at a flea market with my plants.
A year later I added green markets and that turned out to be a success.
I have met many people and made them enthusiastic with my passion and beautiful daylilies.
I also hope to visit many green markets every year to show people what a special plant the daylily is.
In the summer of 2008, the opportunity arose to rent an additional piece of land a few yards away.
I didn't think long about this and then I added 3 acres (300 square meters).
April 2009 another piece of 2 acres was added. In total I now own 800 square meters.
In the fall of 2011 I own a collection of about 1200 different species.
In 2012 I have a total of 1000 square meters of land with many daylilies.
I use 2 ares for my seedlings and I have plants for sale.
I have also set up a sales area where plants are in pots.
In 2013 I built up a collection of about 1350 types of daylilies.
In the years that followed, my collection and land expanded on the complex. I still enjoy working with the plants. Maintenance and keeping weeds free takes a lot of time and energy.
In 2021 I will have a nice collection of about 2000 species. In August 2021 I registered my nursery with the Chamber of Commerce.
I hope this will bring even more attention to my enthusiasm and beautiful daylilies.
