When the growing season is over am I suppose to cut the stems down to ground level for the winter? I live in Nevada and this is my first time for growing lilies. Thanks, Denise

Denise,
Let the foliage die naturally. As long as it is green, it feeds the bulb for the next season blooming. If it is already yellow/brown, you can cut it as close to the ground as you want. I prefer to leave a piece of stem about 3-4" long to remember where the bulbs were planted.

My Red border Asiatic Lilies has all turned brown and look horrible. I don't know what to do with them. I planted thirty bulbs last fall and they all came up and got a few to have red lilies on them. Now they look awful. I am lost with these lilies. Help please!!!

It sounds like they have gotten too much water, ladytexan. That's been my favorite way to kill lilies. :oP
