Will it ever stop raining?

lepagesJune 19, 2009

It's been raining almost everday for the last two weeks! Everything is lush and green but now I've noticed that some of my lilies are starting to yellow at the bottom. I know that eventually it will stop raining and the hopefully the plants will recover. Is there anything I should do to help them recover? Or should I just wait it out?

I know what you mean! England must look like this. The green stuff is all very lush but the flowers are not blooming. I think many more of my irises will rot this year. So far the lilies look OK but I notice that they are creating fewer buds than usual: established ones too. Like Asiatics with big thick stems and 1-4 buds whereas last year the same lilies had more like 9.
