Bloom’n Lilies


Last fall I knew I needed to move my lilies so I dug them up and put them in a washtub for the winter.  The washtub had loose soil that was a nice combination of top soil and peat.  I added organic matter to nourish them throughout the winter and watered them every now and again.

(Lily bulbs are usually always alive.  If yours are dry, plant in a container of damp sand or peat moss until they sprout new roots)

This spring when I was ready to plant my sleeping Asiatic Hybrids they were plump with fresh green roots and ready to hit the ground running!  I have a perfect spot where the roots stay cool and the warm sun is filtered through a large airy shrub.  My regal colored lilies with look beautiful in my  “Audacious  Bouquets”
