Mine struggled for awhile, but I did groom them real hard and we have been cool this summer. Poor things totally ignored this summer, I usually groom them now and then have not touched them this summer.

My lillys we awful this year. Not sure why as they have done so well for the last 6 years. Maybe they didn't like the cool summer which I loved.

That story is common this year! My lillies got maybe eight flowers out of two plants. Most years I get around twenty from each plant! :(

Mine did good, though this is the first year I've had success with lilies so maybe I just think they did good?

They are slowing down now, 45 this am, more yellow leaves then green ones. Pretty soon going to pull them and groom them for winter.

Mine have stopped blooming except the 2 purple tropical ones! Been doing some reading up on when to pull those and winter them over. I have a lot of small plants in pots with kitty litter I wasn't able to get out to my usual customers. Too many to do the usual trim and move to deep water so I'm going to un-pot them, put all the tubers in to a 5 gal. bucket with netting on top and just drop the whole bucket. Hopefully it will work.

Can't see a reason it won't work. I have kept tubers in buckets of water while messing with them. One sat in a bucket for a few months, it did just fine. I have also put them in net bags and just sank (not over winter) but while in a holding pattern of what to do with them.

No just in the spring,
I was thinking I need to groom them for the fall, but then today 10 blooms, one around 8 inches across, new green pads hitting the surface. So they slipped down the to do list, towards the bottom
