Yes, sorry folks, but yesterday I found my first three Lily Beetles: and two of them were copulating!! I put a stop to that, I can tell you. Last year, it was…
Plant the bulbs in the autumn, about 5in deep above the top of the bulb and space 1-2 feet apart. They will need good drainage. Some prefer alkaline soil, others will not tolerate it. They all prefer the sun, but make sure the roots are deep to keep them cool.
They can be propagated by means of offsets from the main bulb, or by seed.
