Hello, i was wondering can all lilies be propagated by leaves? If it is possible how did you do it? Also did you have any success with that if you have done it before?
Here is a link that i found about doing it.

I was going thru posts just today (looking for another)that I had commented on and found this one and that you had replied back. Sorry my reply is so late! It is hard to find posts when you skip all over the place commenting. lol So sorry your lilies got chopped down! Hopefully they had enough food stored to come back next year. I will report back!

do you think they mean propagating from lily scales? I have never heard of using leaves and am extremely sceptical that it can be done whereas scale propagation is reliable and easy.

Campanula did you copy and paste the link that Grant provided? It goes into great detail with pics. You can also do the same thing with Eucomis. I had just never heard of it before this with lilies. There are quite a few plants this method does work with.

P.S. Grant haven't forgotten about you if this works for me I will send you some of the bulbils.

Rena thanks for replying back. I would love to have some of your Bulbils if any grow. Can you please put some of your pictures up as you do the "experiment". So i can try it next year. Thanks Grant
