    Didn't abuse myself enough pulling bog plants, now grooming my lilies.
    I have tons of tubers, free for shipping, some large some small, some budding, some with good roots, some without but great leaves. All will grow.

    Disclaimer, all are labeled but you never know if the label maker i.e. me made a mistake. Most likely what it is labeled as will be the color.

    and a white, can't find a pic right now.

    I will be done grooming in the next few days. If you have interest pm me with real name and address.
    These can be shipping in small boxes, unless you want a lot, prob in the 5-8 dollar range.

    Wish I could get some of these plants from you but I am too broke right now. Will you have some available later in the season? Or maybe I'll get some from you next Spring.

    Damn, if in the UK I would have taken some, but doubt customs would let them through without a costly process :(

    They would prob have to go through expensive quarantine/irradiation before being allowed past the customs :(

    I got some from addy was it last year or the year before? Anyways they are beautiful lilies and so nice she only charges for the shipping costs. Now that's one heck of a good deal! I redid mine today. Took them outta the cat litter and put them back in the baskets w/ just a rock on top bare rooted. Hoping they grow good as they did before. Man those baskets full of cat litter stunk. Now they are all naked and free just like in the late 60's :)

    Addy, I sent you a PM, as I'd love some lilies. Many of mine were destroyed last fall, when my pond gravel was removed.

    I hear so much talk of kitty litter and bare roots. I've tried wrapping in burlap, gravel and aqua soil. Last fall I packed them in our clay soil and tied them up with bird netting to keep koi out. Wondering if I should try placing them in baskets, with just a rock over them or kitty litter?

    I have also gotten lilies from Addy, and they are some of my favorites! LOVE the Georgia Peach, blooms profusely. Just got a Perry's Sunset last year, can't wait for it to grow and bloom soon. Have the deep pink Mayla, gorgeous flower. We will all want to see pics of your lilies, everyone, when they are up and growing! Addy has been and continues to be such a great provider to all of us. :)

    I am doing mine in kitty litter again. I had some floating in the deep end, the litter did fall out and go everywhere, now have kitty litter covered bottom of the pond does not seem to be bothering anything.
    The ones floating around, have huge tubers, minimal roots. The ones in litter have a lot more roots. I have never done just a rock and dropped in, I will take a few and tie them to a rock see how they do compared to the potted ones.

    Perry's is a slower bloomer, but so pretty.

    Looks like all of my lilies are growing, some more than others. The GA Peach has pads on the surface already. Others just leaves right at the pot, under 12-18" of water. Everything in its own time ...

    The georgia is sending buds up already, more buds then pads right now, all are getting fired up.

    I have buckets of tubers to ship out, most likely next monday or tuesday, 6 more to groom.
