Question: I have Hycinth and Lilly plants that are in pots on my porch and have bloomed and I have cut back. my question is, do I keep them in the pots and outside.and if so do I continue to water them.

Answer: Cathy,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

You can keep them in pots if you like. Maintain moderate moisture until the tops die back and then set them in a cool shady spot and stop watering. A little rain on them is fine. Just don't keep the soil wet all the time.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
