I have some lemon lilies and some other color that is darker than tiger lilies. My question is, why don't i get but only a few blossoms?

How long have you had them? The more mature the bulb, the more blooms you get. Do they get around 6 or more hours of sunlight each day? Lilies prefer full sun to a little shade to bloom well. Lastly, what type of soil are they in? Very dry soil will result in fewer blooms.

ChillinPepper...do you have deer there?

That's what happens with my lilies almost every year. But this year I kept sprinkling Milorganite around the lily plants - even last night, and I am getting to enjoy most of my lilies for the first time - they are sooooooooo pretty!

Hi, this is the original gardener to post this question. [Smile] These are not day lilies, these are the kind with the long grassy leaves. Nope, got no pest eating them...there just are no blossoms. Any ideas?

If you are growing them from seeds they take many years before they bloom or at least that's what I've heard. I'm in the same boat with the two I have.
