I purchased a few Asiatic and other bulbs on clearance. They are only 6 " to 8" tall
and already have flowers started.

My question is.. I want them to be healthy dont really care about blooms this year . Should
I pop the buds off ? so they have a chance to mature

Thanks

I say let them bloom this year, they will be fine. The season has plenty of time for maturity of your lily and time to bloom and grow.
