Q.My Lilies Of The Valley Are Not Doing Well.
I have a healthy supply of leaves, under a large holly tree, that is near a large silver maple. I think we keep it relativeIly watered. It was a very mild winter around Washington DC. I believe my lilies of the valley are a pink variety. Very few flowers have come out and the ones that did, look shriveled. I have transplanted them a year or two ago because they weren’t doing well in the previous location either. What might they need.
