advice for asiatic lily mistake

judyhi(6)July 25, 2011

unfortunately I planted asiatic lilies at the end of june. The top leaves are yellowing and browning. New green growth (from bulbets?) are coming up green. What should I do to encourage a living plant for next year?

Thanks in advance.

Just keep the green parts, do not cut them until they are brown. Make sure that you have excellent drainage. Next spring, you can add some bulb food. Most Asiatics are tough and reliable perennials.
