We've planted Lily of the Vallies twice now; and still haven't seen any signs of growth. What's wrong? Thank you.

How very odd! Usually lily of the valley grows too fast and can become overgrown within a few years. The pips will sprout if you keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Perhaps you are planting too deep? I'd try again. First amend the soil with compost or other organic matter to loosen it and help it retain moisture. Then plant your pips or sprouted transplants and water them in well. I hope they take this time!
