We have had weeks of unseasonably warm weather and LOTS of rain. We now have lily shoots from about 0.5" to 2" high. Temps in 20s & 30s coming. Should I do anything for them?
Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

This happened to me when I grew in a good climate, I suggest covering them with mulch, just until covered. That worked for me in the past.
