I have just found his newsgroup and I have some newbie questions:
1. How do I bring back a dried out, brown, potted day lily?
It's in a plastic pot and I would like to put it with my other two day

freezing more than once and kept them from drying out as well.
I live in south east Texas on the gulf coast.
Any advice or help is greatly appreciated I am more of a throw it in the
ground and leave it alone gardener since I am disabled and can't do a lot of
