Budding Lillies

Around about autumn time when I was lifting  the spent lilies I came across a few little bulblets around the base of the stem, this was a first for me so I just popped them in a cell with some soil, watered and waited.

After a few weeks the bulbs produced some really vibrant green shoots, but by winter the leaves began to die and i got slightly worried but I decided to keep them in the greenhouse over winter.

And it’s a good job I did the bulbs started to produce shoots again 2 weeks back so when they were large enough I potted them up, so now I have some baby lilies for free which are destined for the flower bed when their older.

 

Are you over wintering any plants ?
