Planting and careIn active growth, water freely especially if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week.Keep lilies mulched so that their roots are cool. The mulch should feel moist but not wet. Apply a high-potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from early spring until 6 weeks after flowering.
The deep planting encourages the developing stem to send out roots to help stabilize the plant and perhaps eliminate the need for staking. Also, deep planting keeps lily bulbs cool when temperatures soar. Enrich the soil with leaf mold or well-rotted organic matter to encourage good drainage
