Most of my Asiatic lilies are planted in containers, with other plants.When they have finished flowering can I replant them in another container and move that to a less prominent site in the garden?

Brian, just be sure to let the long stems and leaves remain until they at least turn very yellow. They will feed the bulbs underground so that they get the nourishment they need to flower next season. I'm not an expert, but I'm going to say that it's probably best to wait until the fall to transplant, whether you're moving them to another pot or to a spot in the ground. I'm been told that transplanting in the early spring is doable too.

Any experts want to chime in?
