Bulbs

I have 2 problems:

1 – I planted bulbs in October. They sprouted but never fully bloomed. Now bulbs are popping out of the ground.
2 – I had planted lilies 5 years ago. They are now overcroweded. They bloom every Easter, then wilt. How do I maintain these?

As for the lilies, you can just divide them and they will perform better when not crowded. This article will help with that: [2]
