Anyone give me any advice how to bring this around? It is looking rather forlorn

Is it in the right compost ie multi-purpose? Also yellowing leaves are a sign of iron deficiency - a few rusty nails in your watering can will give it the iron it needs. My lilies are only watered in the mornings if the day is going to be hot, otherwise don't over-water it. I hope this helps abit. ☺

I heard they are very hungry plants too and need regular feeds 😊 I'm hoping to get one next year
