Lilies eaten to ground level

Will they recover this year or should I repot them and hide them in a corner until next year and use the containers for something else?

    I think if the growing tip is gone that’s their lot for this year.
    No idea how they’ll do next year tho ... if they dont grow and photosynthesise how will they stay alive and build up energy stores for next year ?  🤷‍♀️

    Dove thanks. I'll poke them in the ground somewhere😕 I do have some replacements, but I'd hoped they'd be additions.

    Did you discover who ate them?

    I've not got him yet, but I'm on the case. He's a slimy character though. My scissors and my size six and a half are fully charged and at the ready @Dovefromabove

    I left the bulbs in situ as it was going to be a faff getting them out and finding somewhere to put them.
    They've all shot up. The first leaves look a bit ragged and chewed - make that very! But the new leaves look pretty normal so I, with any luck, I might be able to add them to my list of Lazarus plants😊
