Celebrating Gardening: 2015

I have read numerous articles on this and to be honest not found many of them to helpful
so I thought I would get some ideas from you on here
I got it all over my pants, let it dry and tried to wipe it off as they said and no go and hung them in the sun for a few hours and no go either.....
I am tracking is on my shoes too.......
I have a lot of lilies here
tempted to go out and pull all the antlers off everything although that is what makes a lily look nice
never have this with the Asiatic of all things mostly the trumpets and that is what I have the most of in the gardens....

it truly does stain big time....
I had my white bulldog out for a walk with me around the flowers and he got some on his white fur and that was one big chore to get it off him........too.. he was not in the bed but brushed against a hanging trumpet.....

so lets hear your thoughts

I would say your mistake was to try to wipe it off. I deal with this every summer. I am successful most times but sometimes I don't notice it until I have inadvertently rubbed it in. Best to try to avoid contacting it but that is very difficult for us lily lovers.
