I have done on your last post. but this is a site for garden enthusiasts and in my case I have been laying concrete all day. I hope my answer has helped.

Moyac we respond as and when we can… as Seaburngirl says we are a bunch of garden enthusiasts. Putting up snippy comments is not going to endear you to us!

Which lilies are you referring to - the ones we grow we leave in the ground.

If they are in the ground and you are moving you will have to dig them up - are you asking how to store them after digging them up? When are you moving? Perhaps you could plant them deeply in a large pot (or pots) which will be relatively easy to move. They could be left in the pots for the next season if that's convenient, as there are so many other things to think about when you move.

You probably didn't realise that there isn't a panel of experts on here - we are all just private gardeners - well there are some expert nurserymen and women too, but we use this site for pleasure and interest and try to share our interest and experience with each other. We are always happy to answer questions if we know the answer and you would be welcome to join us, but you can't expect instant replies! Hope your move goes well.

Hi Moyack welcome to goy. I dk what you did but your question has appeared 5 times. Seaburngirl answered correctly on the fourth post. We can give you lots of advice from personal experience and lend an ear when everything is going mad around you but if you are after professional instant advice you would be better to ask in your local garden centre. Quite a few of our members are on the move and have coped with transplanting favourite plants to their new homes by taking the advice offered. I hope your new garden will be appearing here in the future.
