A beauty I hope the lily beetle keeps away I found them on mine in the past.

Me too, then the Lily Beatles go onto the Lilies.

Yes that's the problem. I have my lilies in pots so I can do what Gnarly gnome suggest tip the old soil out where they hybinate and give them new soil.

Nice :-). In your ‘bog’ garden :-)

Not in 'not a bog' the Snakes Head Fritillary' is in quite a sunny place, but rain runs to this area behind the (preformed ) pond. Sarracenia demand a sunny position, although demanding of growing medium, that is damp peaty soil, no nutrients, they get that from their carniverous nature.

Lovely to see the Fritillaries coming up. Ours aren't so advanced as yours Siris.
