Harbour Breezes -Allan Banks - Japanese Iris- April-1,2015

Owner Allan Banks of Harbour Breezes Daylilies is located in Salmon River Bridge, on Nova Scotia’s eastern shore. With three acres to landscape, and to grow plants. Development of the property is ongoing and will be for the foreseeable future.
Pathways, rock walls, and stairways lead visitors in and out of a variety of formal, semi-formal,
Japanese style and eclectic gardens. Beside daylilies, other perennials, shrubs, sculptures, garden structures, and buildings add to the interest of the garden. We are also trying our hand at raising honeybees.

Our gardens begin growth early in the spring but slow during the summer due to fog, cloud cover and cool overnight temperatures. Additionally, freeze-thaw cycles in winter and early spring can damage some of the more tender daylilies. Cooler summer temperatures can negatively affect heat-sensitive varieties like many doubles, as well as blooms with thickly crimped edges or toothed daylilies. Due to a lack of snow cover and harsh freeze-thaw cycles, we believe the varieties of daylilies that we sell are very hardy.
