You can plant your stargazer lilies now, or wait until spring to plant them. The stems will die down at first frost; prune them off when this happens. When you do plant them, be sure to plant in well-draining soil (they hate soggy soils!) and plant them at the same soil level as they have been growing in the pot. If you don't want to plant them now, you might want to dig a hole and sink the pots into the ground to help protect the bulbs and roots from freezing during the winter months.

Best wishes with your garden!
