If like me you have been plagued by #lilybeetle this year. Worth having a close look to see whats going on on your #lilyleaves little sacks of squishy feeling and looking poo drops on your leaves are #larvae and worth getting rid of. To help minimise those pesky beetles next year! I cut off each leaf where I could easily scrape the little critters off. Took some time but hopefully I've eradicated a few this afternoon #lilyadvice

Keep a bucket of soapy water around drown those suckers leave in the water till done collecting them for their time frame of invading. They smell bad to other ones and they die off

They chat to each other, they’re saying “I hope we don’t get squished”

Seems as though only 2 out of 4 have risen to see the #sunshine so far. Fingers crossed for the other 2 to make an appearance 🤞👀

@sieveheadsarah Yep I know it's very strange did I bury the bulb too low like about a foot lol

sieveheadsarah

A foot??? 😂😂 supposed to be three times as deep as the height of the bulb.

comment
mattfeaton

@sieveheadsarah they are about 4 inches deep or so as I remember. Not sure why they are so short was definitely expecting a lot more #foliage
