No blooms on lillies - Knowledgebase Question

Question by jeneec620

I had transplanted some tiger lily bulbs last summer from a yard to pots for my apt patio. The leaves grew quite well but no flowers. I assumed by this spring I'd see some growth... nothing yet. Again, the leaves are tall but I see no flowers!
My apt gets partial sun throughout the day. What can I do to get these to bloom? Thanks!

Lack of adequate sunshine is the most common reason for failure to bloom. You mentioned partial sun so I take that to mean less than 8 hours of direct sunshine. If so, try to find a better spot - one in full sunshine - and your Tiger Lilies will reward you with lots of flowers. Enjoy!
