Self supporting stems

This question was asked by
Caroline R

I have 5 pots of oriental lilies. Extravaganza, blackband, tiger moon, auretum goldband and tricolour.
The extravaganza and black and have sturdy stems which have required little or no support. The others have flowered but the stems are thin and inadequate unable to support blooms. How can I rectify this problem?

HI Caroline

The only thing you can do is add some support this year and they should develop stronger stems for next year. You could give them a feed to encourage stronger growth. Sometimes with Oriental lilies, the heads are very heavy the first year and the stems need a little help with support.
