new lillies and questions
I planted a bunch of oriental lilly bulbs last fall and they are up along with tons of weeds (the leaves of which are somewhat like delphinums-they cover everything around here and just grow and grow unless I yank them.) Any ideas what these weeds might be (Northern Va)-they are all over the place in my perennial, rose and now lillie areas.
Should I weed the lillys or are the weeds providing some protection? The lillies are much taller than the weeds at this point.
Do the lillies need support? A woman with a pick your own flower farm had a grid set up of fishing line that her's grew through but I'm wondering what will happen if I just let them be.
Also they are not close to a water source. Should I be watering them? What about fertilizer?
thanks for the feedback
