move to sun

anna_lisa(Quebec)June 11, 2006

Hi I have 6 lillium 3 in the sun and 3 in the shade the ones in the sun are doing very well. The ones in the shade are not they are not bushy at all hardly any leaves they did flower beautiful last year but they were new bulbs in the shade but this year they had slow start and now they don't look good. Can I move them in the fall and put them in the sun and will they come back nice and bushy next year Anna

Yes you can move them in the fall. Make sure you put some bone meal in the planting hole and make sure you have good drainage. They should do better next year in the sun, although most lilies do well in part-shade.
