Moving lillies outside

Posted by stanc 5 (My Page) on

I purchased some lillie bulbs from home depot about 3 weeks
ago and started them in some buld crates in my basement.
They have started growing and are about 4-5" tall now.
I have them under lights.
The ground outside is about 40 degrees using a soil thermometer.
Can I move outside?
Do I need to harden them off.
Do you have some other tips?
What about a cold frame?

Stanc, go ahead and put them outside. They will be absolutely fine. No need for a cold frame. It is great to grow them in crates if you wish to, it saves room in the garden and makes the flowers really easy to harvest. Enjoy. Kat

Mine in the garden are 3" high and that's with it been so cold yet. Unless you need them for a special event in May or June then you can put them outside instead of cold frame.
