I have lilies that are 40 plus years old and they are starting to thin out. Can I plant the bulblis in the fall to insure better growth?
You can also dig and divide the clump to invigorate the stand.
I live in michigan. And fall is upon us however my lilies that I planted around my house 2 years ago I noticed this morning the bulbs are coming up to the surface. Why and what can I do to help my plants?
This article should help:
last year i planted some peacock lilies & then middle to late summer, they bloomed and bloomed for about 6 weeks - a marvelous display, they were in some large planters ( about size of a standard bucket) - for the winter i took them in to the shed (the shed is clad in 1" thick pine) although cold its never freezing inside. so as i said they were stored over winter in the shed, i waited until the leaves turned brown then cut them off - then after we put the clocks on late march i took them outside - this year however they have not flowered - is it because i left them in the soil ? should i have removed them ? - are they likely to flower next year.
They may have rotted in the soil. You can check the soil for them. They do best lifted in the fall and stored in an area that stays around 50 degrees F. Here is more:
They were doing very well and then they turned like a wet looking brown. Not all my lilies are doing this. They even bloomed earlier this summer. The leaves on my roses are falling off also. However the leaves are brown.
First, check your plants for any pests. If you don't see pests like aphids, consider weather events. There is more on that in the articles below. If cultural reasons also can be cleared, you may need to look at diseases of lilies and roses. Black spot is a very common fungal disease of roses and leaves will quickly fall off.
Please. How do I kill green goddess lilies. They are coming up everywhere. Thank you
You can try digging up the tubers, but if you don't get them all out, they will return. Mowing will not help. You can spray them with an herbicide labeled for their use. Even so, you may need to retreat. The tubers are tough to eradicate. Plus the leaves are waxy and difficult to penetrate. It may be worth hiring a professional to get rid of them.
I couldn't tell where you are by that zone, but here are a couple articles that may help:
plant them for flowers in the spring? Should I plant them outside now for spring or plant them indoors until spring?
Go ahead and get them in the ground for spring to early summer bloom. Plant them in well draining soil in full to part sun at about a depth of 6 inches. Plant them about 4 inches apart in groups. Here is more:
ust on top of it? Won’t the mothballs damage the lily rhizome?
Please do not use mothballs at all. They can be dangerous when exposed to the air. They are meant to be used in closed containers so the vapors are not inhaled. Here is more:
