How to Care for Lilies
- During active growth, water freely—especially if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week.
- Keep lilies mulched so that their roots are cool.
- Apply a high-potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from planting until 6 weeks after flowering.
Additionally, do lilies multiply? Lilies use the foliage on their stems to produce the energy they'll need for next year's flowers. Lilies are hardy perennials and in zones 4-9 the bulbs can be left right in the garden for the winter. Over time, most lily bulbs multiply and the plants grow into large clumps that produce multiple stems.
Also know, how do you grow Christmas lilies?
Growing Lilies Plant bulbs immediately on arrival - do not allow bulbs to dry out before planting. They like an area that has semi-shade or full sun, and well-drained, slightly acidic soil with good humus content. Work bulb food into the planting area and cover the bulbs with 10cm (4inches) of good, friable soil.
