The Q&A Archives: lilies what do I DO

Question: i planted oriental lilies and they bloomed beautifully then the blooms fell off so now is there something i can do for them to come bck or do I need to cut down to ground level and wait til next year?

Answer: Stephanie,

Cut off the spent blooms by cutting just below the bloom. Don't remove the leaves along the tall bloom stalk as these need to be left to replenish the bulb for next year's bloom.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
