How To Move Daylilies?
Daylight Saving Time (DST) is a time change that occurs every year from one Sunday in March to another Sunday in November. DST is not just a seasonal phenomenon; it’s actually been going on since 1918!
Why does DST exist? Is there any scientific reason behind it? What are its effects on our lives? And what happens if we don’t observe DST at all?
If you’re like most people, you probably have no idea. But here’s your chance to learn something new…
The following information comes from Wikipedia, a free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. I’ve added my own commentary where necessary. You’ll notice that I’m not an expert on anything related to DST or moving daylilies.
That’s because I’m not really sure myself! However, I am an experienced gardener with years of experience in the garden. So let me try to give you some tips on how to move daylilies successfully during DST.
If you live in a place without daylight saving time, then you won’t need to worry about moving daylilies during DST. That sounds like most of you who are reading this! However, if you live in one of the few places that do observe DST—and more are starting to adopt it these days—then you really need to pay attention.
This is especially important if you travel back and forth between a place that observes DST and one that doesn’t.
So what exactly is daylight saving time?
It’s a system that was initiated in the early twentieth century to conserve energy by encouraging people to use more sunshine hours as opposed to lighting their homes at night. The system works like this: Around March 10 of every year, clocks are moved ahead by one hour. This moves an hour of daylight into the evening. That means that at 2:00 p.m. in the spring, you actually have the same amount of sunlight that you would see at 3:00 p.m.
