|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?|

|I would plant them now.|

|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..........
