Had lilies growing/now some spots are bare
I had groupings of speciosum rubrum, orientals and asiatics last year in a raised bed. They bloomed really well for their first year. I don't see any disease or anything, but wonder why there are some spots that look barren now....nothing coming up in a few places. If anything, I would think there would possibly be some INCREASE, not decrease! The bulbs were all initially soaked or sprayed with ROPEL to keep animals from gnawing on them. Any ideas? I was careful not to use a lot of high nitrogen fertilizer because I was aware of it promoting rot.
Thanks! :0) Phyl
