The Q&A Archives: Fertilizing Established Lilies

Question: Should established lilies be fed monthly during the growing season; if so, how much?

Answer: There are numerous types of lilies and they have different care requirements. However, most lilies will benefit from light feeding with a low-nitrogen, high phosphorous (to promote bloom) fertilizer during the growing season. Stop fertilizing when the leaves start to yellow in the fall.
