Hi – I divided and fed my daylillies last year with blood and bone and compost, but despite that they are still looking lacklustre with yellowing leaves. Could they have some sort of rust? How can I restore them back to health?

Hi Jill, If it is rust you should be able to see this on the underside of the leaves (browny powder) In this case prune them hard and spray with Free flow copper on a regular basis (every 3 weeks, or more often during wet and high humidity) Ensure they are in a full sun position, Blood and bone might have burned some of the roots and hence a bit slow in coming away also it is also a bit early to expect lots of good new growth. Possibly apply a side dressing of Sheep pellets to help give them a boost into the spring months.

Thanks the Palmers Team
