Answer: Lilies can be propagated vegetatively, or by seeds. The seed pods can contain up to 100 viable seeds and are usually planted as soon as they're ripe. If you kept seeds from last year in a cool, dry place, sow them in the garden in the early spring. If you're going to wait until this year's bloom, take the dried seed pods off of the stems and sprinkle the seeds on the soil. They should germinate in a few weeks. Remember that lilies grown from seed will be distinct individuals with characteristics from both parents. You should be able to fill your garden with lilies in a few short years.
