Protection by growing in pots set in ground?
My order of oriental, etc. lilies is sitting next to me. Where I planned to plant them has suffered severe vole issues (my formerly successful lily planting area).
I have two ideas: one is to make cages. The other is to put the lilies in pots and either sink the pots into the ground at "x" depth or just as potted plants-at least until I can figure out the permanent planting site.
If pots, what is recommended? Clay or plastic? Any particular potting medium?
Placement in ground or above? Does it affect siting to protect plants from overheating in pots?
No one answered a different question about cages and the larger diameters stalks. How do you make a cage that allows for the stalk to exit but the voles not to get in?
