Lily Bulbs

This question was asked by
L. Farrell

I plant most of my lilies in container pots. I usually leave them in the containers over winter.
Is this correct or should I remove the Lily bulb and put it in a cardboard box? or what is the correct way to look after them?
Many thanks for your assistance, kind regards LIz

Hi Liz

The lily bulbs are happy to stay in their pots in soil and outside (as they like a cold dormant phase), however they must be in a well-drained container and ensure the bulbs do not get waterlogged as they rot.
