I need advice Quick!!!
I have about 150 lilies in my gardens, plus one in my house ( my daughter). In the past week or so I have noticed that over a third of my lilies looked like they were dying. Many started to topple over. They have some sort of borer in them. I have cut off and discarded all the infected lilies but each day I find more dying a slow death. What is this pest and what can I do about it? Will the lilies I have lost this year come back next year? How can I prevent this from happening again. I bought some new bulbs last fall could this nasty pest come in with the bulbs?
