Should I pot spring purchased lilies?
I bought some lilies already and IÂm not sure what to do with them. None of the existing ones in the garden are up yet, to show me where they are. Though all were tagged in the fall, a certain number of tags disappear over the winter. We had heavy snow, they might have been pushed too deeply into the soil. The garden is STUFFED so the odds of hitting something while digging are pretty good.
I have 2 different issues:
first one: 3 kinds were sprouted already, so I didnÂt think they could wait. I potted them up. Should they go outside or be kept in the house until I can plant them in the garden? What about frosts?
Second: the newest ones bought do not have sprouts. Am I safe in waiting to plant them until I see where the existing lilies are? I can keep them in the cold garage or in the basement on the cement floor. Or should I pot them up too?
