|Asiatic lilies are easy to take care of. Wait until your first frost kills the foliage and stems of you lilies. Going through this process will signal the bulbs that it's time to go dormant. After the tops of the plants die down, cut everything off at ground level and cover over the bed with another 3-4 inches of shredded leaves or compost. This will provide adequate insulation and your bulbs will rest until next spring. Rake or brush away the extra mulch material and you'll see healthy new stems develop. Enjoy your garden!
