Tree lily issue

Hello. Can anyone identify this problem please and also how to resolve it. I have a lot of tree lilies in very large pots and treat them all the same. The lilies in this pot - please see photographs - are not doing very well. The buds are very small and the leaves are turning yellow with brown spots and then falling off.

Your help would be appreciated.

    Either a virus affecting the whole plant (probably spread by aphids) or vine weevil grubs chewing the roots. Some varieties are more susceptible than others.  Any lilies in pots not doing well, I tip out at the end of the season when they die down. There are often white grubs chewing the roots. Spread on the ground, the blackbirds will eat them.
