Hi, I have a newbie question. I grew some asiatic and oriental lilies in pots this summer. But I want to plant these in the ground. Can I do this now or do I have to wait until spring to do this?

Yes, plant them now. I'm still working on getting my overabundance of potted lilies planted out.

Yes, now would be an ideal time in your area for planting them in the garden. Just make sure to plant them in a spot where they'll get good drainage. If you're lucky, you might even find some little baby bulblets along with the mother bulbs; plant those too. And don't forget to label and mark the spot so you don't accidentally step on them before they emerge next spring.

Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?

It may be that your soil is acid, but I think that you need ericaceous soil for the orientals to thrive. I also just potted up a hundred or more so I can prepare the beds for them for spring. If I was better organised............or had more time..........
