Lilies in pots?
I got my first lily bulbs last year and was so anxious to see the beautiful flowers, but some #!$* varmint ate all the buds off my lilies before they bloomed. So today I dug them up, thinking I could put them in pots that I would be able to protect better. But then I read that they need to be planted at least 8" deep. Since they presumably need some space underneath the bulb, this means I need really, really deep pots. It seems to me that I've seen blooming lilies for sale at nurserys and they're in regular plastic pots that are about 6" wide and 6" deep. Is my memory faulty?
Does anyone have advice about growing lilies in pots?
