Yes, but only after the threat of frost has passed. When you are ready for planting outdoors, trim off dead foliage and plant the bulbs about six inches deep in well-draining soil. Lilies need plenty of sunlight, so place in a sunny location. Your plant will need to be watered frequently during dry periods from spring through fall. Mulch will help conserve moisture. New growth should begin to emerge next spring (around this time). When growth is about 3 inches above ground level, fertilize with a 5-10-10 fertilizer (higher phosphorus than nitrogen).
