lily bulbets - Knowledgebase Question

About 1 month ago my sister gave me bulblets from her lilies. Not knowing they needed a chill period I put them in pots. Some of them have begun to grow foliage. Do I still dig them up in the fall and chill them regardless of the foliage?

At this point, just allow them to grow their leaves. The photosynthesis that takes place will help the little bulblets grow larger and stronger. When the foliage dies down on its own at the end of the season and the bulblets go dormant you can dig them up and set them in the refrigerator with the rest of your bulbs. Enjoy your garden!
