Starting lilies from seed

Posted by cognitiveblonde NY (My Page) on

I collected a bunch of seeds this past fall with the intention of starting them indoors. After misplacing them for a few months (woops), I put them in a plastic bag with soil as per this website:

I do not know what type of lily they are (they were dark red with yellowy-orange throats), but I assumed they were hypogeal seeds. Now I am a little nervous about all the green shoots coming from them. I started them in early March and they seem to be outgrowing the bag already.

Do I put the bags in the refrigerator like the website suggests, or should I take them out and plant them?

i'd go out side asap, their sprouting and it's little late to be planting but they will endure. nearly every single lily i have is shooting up right now outside, some are nearly 3 feet tall! wish i had pics

RE: Starting lilies from seed

Thank you so much! I should have paid more attention to the bags once I planted them, or planted a few seeds normally to test them out. Thanks for saving my seedlings!!
