Planted Lily bulbs

I planted some lily bulbs last spring. They bloomed, and now as the cold months rolled in, the stem is still standing slowly dying as it should. My question is: should I cut the stem, and how do I prepare my planted outdoor potted bulbs for winter?

Yes, you can cut the stem. As for winter preparation, this depends on the type of lily and where you live. Some types of lilies are winter-hardy and don’t need protection in gardening zones 3 and above. Others can only survive the winter in relatively warm zones 7 and above; they will need to be brought indoors in colder zones. Check your gardening zone here:
