The original cluster of lilies did not grow this year. Even lost some of the tulip bulbs. Their were small white snails in with the tulip bulbs & saw some in the area where the tiger lilies are. The lilies are the old-fashioned Orange ones.
Here is a pest that affects lilies and its larvae resembles slugs.
I am in Michigan. I am moving in a few weeks. I want to bring my brood of Tiger Lilies (they've moved with me 4 times already, this will be # 5).. with me, but it is late summer and I do not know where I want to plant them at this new house. Rather than quickly planting them somewhere without thought, I want to know: Can I over winter them without being in the soil? Is there a proper method for this? Please and Thank you in Advance Laura
You can, definitely, overwinter them outside of the soil. The caveat would be that the living growth needs to die back or be close to it before you dig them up.
Some of them may survive the process if you grab much more than you intend to keep.
Another thing to consider would be to grow them in container until you find a place for them.
