The Q&A Archives: Growing Tiger Lilies from Seed

Question: We purchased a tiger lily last year and let it go to seed. We harvested the seeds and planted them indoors last month. Now we have sprouts. What is next? Shall we plant them directly into our raised beds? If so, when? If not, what next?

Answer: What fun! Was the parent plant a hybrid? I wonder what you'll end up with! Go ahead and transplant the seedlings into beds as soon as danger of frost has passed. Let them grow til the bulbs are marble-sized, and replant them in their permanent home -they may bloom within two years!
