Harriet Cotter asked 12 years ago

I have lots of lillies in pots and in the ground. They have largely stopped flowering by now and I am wondering if I should let the stalks die back naturally or cut the stalks. Would appreciate your advice

When lilies stop flowering, the plant builds up the bulb to flower next year, so leave them to wither back naturally. Take off developing seed pods if they form, which can happen, so that the growth goes into the bulb.
