This #lily smells amazing by the front door, and is an #easygrow plant, Just plant bulbs and water occasionally! Happy Thursday everyone, looks like it might be dry!?

Hi. These look beautiful. Mine have now died off. What do you do once they've flowered. I heard cut right down?

Morning and thank you @angiecrazycatlady @flof1952 @pelly @Keely and @Greengrower I normally dead head as they die off then leave the foliage to die back later in the year as the leaves still look lovely in the borders and cut back in the autumn- not sure it's right but that's what I do and it works 😊

I'm never quite sure if what I'm doing is right but if it works I carry on 😆

You are supposed to leave the foliage until it's died off so the goodness goes into the bulbs Kelly @Greengrower 😊😊😊

Lovely. I always just take the dead flowers off and leave everything else to die naturally. When they start to look bad I put the pots out of sight 😊 @Greengrower
