lily seeds

ceaser7(z5 NW INDIANA)August 6, 2006

I have a Tiger lily that has produced seeds where the leaves meet the stalk. I have plucked some of the seeds. What should I do now to grow the seeds for next year.

Just set them on top of the soil and they'll almost immediately send down a root (the green top will take longer). Enjoy!

I had this great benefit 10+ years ago. Carefully remove the "baby bulbs" and plant them just at the soil surface somewhere that will NOT be disturbed for 2-3 years. The 3rd spring you will have full size plants and blooms. it will help if you replant them a bit deeper each fall. What variety do you have? My original stock has since died out and I gave away all the new ones.
