Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

Lily Question

Pittsburgh, PA(Zone 6a)

My tropical and hardy lily put out nice buds but they won't open. I cut the hardy bud off but perhaps shouldn't have. I've been feeding them but perhaps not enough. I stuck another pellet in them both last evening. Couldn't hurt,,,right? Anyone ever had this problem before? Thanks everyone!! "T" :)

New Albany, MS(Zone 7a)

I feed my lily's one tab a week during heavy growing and blooming times. Try that. Are the buds forming completely?

Cicero, NY(Zone 5a)

I feed mine every 2 weeks,I use broken up tree fertilizer spikes,broken into chunks.Are they getting enough sun?

Pittsburgh, PA(Zone 6a)

The bud finally opened. It seemed to take almost a week for it to open but it did. I have a feeling the floating plants are keeping the sun from the plant so I may have to thin some. Either that or tie them up some...kinda like a lasso to control them alittle bit. Thanks for the help. It's truly appreciated. "T" :)
