Lily flowering

This question was asked by

I got some lilies from you at tatton this year. Usually I can get to flower quickly before autumn
This time lilies are in bud but no signs of opening
What’s my best plan of action ?
They have now been moved into unheated greenhouse for winter

Hi there,
They may have got too wet if they are struggling to open. Once everything has died back, remove the foliage and then hopefully they will be ok for next year’s flowering cycle. You could also give the lilies a tomato feed once you see signs of growth. Make up your tomato feed with half the recommended dilution (written on the instructions on the bottle) and feed once every 3 weeks.
