Advice about cutting roselilies

This question was asked by

Hi. I planted out some roselilies for cutting in a cutting bed and I’ve just started bringing them in, delighted with the results.
I just want some advice about whether they will repeat flower next year and if there is any way I should cut or feed them to improve the chances. I am so delighted with them we will be buying new stock anyway but would like this to become a recurrent bed if at all possible. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Paul
You need to leave a good amount of stem on the lilies to die back naturally to feed the bulb for the following year. If the lilies are cut too short then they probably won’t flower very well for a few years. I’d suggest leaving at least 2ft of stem if you can. You can give them a diluted tomato feed to help them every 2 weeks.
