Anget, i said a couple of years, I'm going to stop growing Lilies cause they get decimated, so what do I do, increase the number!

Its lovely Siris love hiw it hangs upside down. Always best to change the soil when buying or each year to prevent lily beetle as they lay their eggs in the soil a male gardener in Wales forgot his nametold me he never gets them as he changes the soil every year.
I can recall never seeing a lily beetle on mine until I bought a new one from Homebase.

I remember now the name of the gardener here it wss Gnsrly gnome who told me he changes the compost every year and he never gets the lily beetle.

I'd have to change the soil everywhere, 3Pb!

Yes thats why I keep mine in pots Siris 😊

I'll have to test out that theory. 3Pb, I don't think any of my Lilies in pots have been eaten.
