Plant liliums in a rich, well-drained soil. In pots, use good-quality potting mix. Choose a spot that's sunny or partially shaded, but sheltered from strong winds that could damage the stems or flower heads. In very hot climates, liliums grow well in shady spots and appreciate cool soils.
In this way, what do you do with lily bulbs after they bloom?
Lilies do not bloom more than once per season, but you can remove the faded flowers so that the plants don't waste energy making seeds. After the lily blooms, you can also remove just the stem itself. However, do NOT remove leaves until they have died down and turned brown in fall.
Beside above, should lilies be cut back after flowering?
A: It's best just to remove the stem itself. You should deadhead blooms and cut back stems as the lilies bloom during the growing season, and again let the foliage die back, but once it has died back in the fall, it can be cut off at this point.
What is the best fertilizer for lilies?
The North American Lily Society recommends the generous use of a 10-10-10 type granular fertilizer, scratched into the soil and watered in well when sprouts emerge in spring. Smaller feedings can be applied at regular intervals thereafter -- every 4 to 6 weeks or so -- during the growing season, always watered in well.
