Help and advice required please

Good Afternoon.
looking for some help and advice if possible.  I am going to try and upload an image of the leaves on my Giant Himalayan Lilly and wondered if the members could tell me what’s going wrong, and if it’s getting to much sun or is it a disease

    I believe they need a partially shaded location and need to be in deep and fertile ground which doesn't get waterlogged.  The flowers grow to 2m tall, so I would say it's unsuitable for growing in a pot of that size.  Info. from the RHS is here:

    Hello jendrew and welcome to the forum. Your Cardiocrinum needs to be in dappled shade such as would be found in a woodland. They do not like sun, where the leaves will burn like that. It would also be happier in the ground rather than in a pot

  • Thank you Ladybird, been going through long build time on our place and just trying to get some planting going but obviously making mistakes as we go.  Your advice is very useful and appreciated
    regards Jennie
