|several trees squashed some of my lily beds........
not all of them but some of them..........
they are flattened
the Asiatic lilies were done blooming and that bed got hit the hardest
the orientals are still blooming and some of them got flattened too.......
this sucks big time
but wander if the bulb can pull through this for next year......even if the blooms are not as strong or do I start over again........with new bulbs??
do I leave the mess the way it is............and hope some of the goodness can go back to the bulb........but most of the stalks are bent and more or less broke in spots

|it was my neighbours trees that fell on my yard........
my yard took quite the kicking to be honest
wiped out a shed at the back and also the close line
and all the nails on the roof are lifted on the steel roof
the insurance agent is called
but that does not cover the bulbs
this town here is a total mess
what amazes me is that the tulip tree that intolerant of wind and so on.............is still standing with a just a few leaves that fell and 2 seed pods
yet the powerful maples fell over next door and they are much stronger
but the tulip tree is a hardwood and the maple is a softwood...........
shocked at the tulip tree
the front lilies are fine but did find Kirsha Maya.............4 doors down in the street in the pot and still intact............
that lily will be added here next year again
I want to buy a few more of these..........
did not even hurt the bloom that is odd
Salmon Star got moved across the yard and not bloomed yet and in the pot
and a few other got moved.........around to different places in the yard
but the main big bed are all fine with the lilies
tornadoes show no mercy on anyone......

|Sorry to hear of your disaster!
I would leave the lilies the way they are and give the bulbs a chance to develop.

|I agree. I have a few that have broken over (but not completely apart) and I have simply left them where they landed. It will greatly benefit the bulbs for next year.|
