We have beautiful tree lilies but we need to know when we can cut them down. We will cover them for winter but never remember when we should cut then down and when we do, should it be level with the ground>
Wait until the stems are dead and pull away easily from the bulb. Don't cut the stems while they are green as they are still feeding the bulbs ready for next year.
Thank you very much this is very helpful.
Hi quick question in an old thread. Is it possible to pinch out the growing tip on tree lilies so they don't grow above, say, 1.8m? The space they're in they would be perfect at that height, but any taller and they'll be pushing through a slight overhang into the house! 😁
I planted tree lilies in different places in my garden - and found that at some places they grow great, in others - not good at all. I was wondering what would be a good time to replant some of them and move them to a better spot? Is it now, in July - as they are quite healthy and should survive the move quite well, or better to do it in Autumn, when they are dormant, or in Spring, when they are waking up? All confused now
This is their first summer, so they wouldn't be too mature. All grow in the ground, not pots.
