I live in Georgia. My casa blanca lilies are terrible this year, bloomed last year, they are small, yellowing, not buds or blooms. I have a friend 30 min. away and hers are the same, just awful. At this point I am thinking of just digging them up, and starting all over. Any ideas?
That is interesting. I started out with 12 Casablancas in 2003 and had them for years. They had been so tough I moved them to other locations. And the flowers were huge. A couple of years ago they started dwindling down. Smaller, yellowing, no blooms. This year there were only two. I dug them up and put them in a pot and they seem much happier.
If you want to take a shot, dig them up, put them in a pot with fresh mix, keep them watered (seems to be more important than the average lily) and some weak fertilizer. That's what I'm doing and they seem robust again.
Thanks. I dug them up the other day. 3 of them had no bulb left on the end of the stalk. I think borers for sure. All my other lily bulbs are in pots, think I will go that route too.
Way to go. I'm finding that every lily I dig up and put in a pot thrives, probably because they are closer to the house and I can give them more consistent care.
