i have had some lillies in tubs for four years and this year they gave a poor show maybe i did not look after them as i should have but i am thinking of putting them in the garden for next year am i doing the right thing they did flower but not the magnificent show they gave in previous years



I had this happen to me last year they were too wet because of the weather being so wet and had tiny slugs on them at the back of the leaves, lilies in pots as well as in the garden love a lot of drainage so now I put lots of grit at the bottom as well as mixed in with the soil I even lost my agapanthus.

Usually Lillies need dividing every 3-4 years are they over crowded?

Did you refresh the growing medium and feed them? That could also be the reason.
