Now is a great time to replant your lily. I'd leave the little bulblets attached to the parent bulb - for now. Just pot the entire thing up. Next fall you can separate the bulblets and pot each one up on its own. You can plant some shallow rooted annuals as companions to your lily. Impatiens, lobelia, Kenilworth Ivy, or Bacopa are good choices. Good luck with your lilies!
