Lily pruning - when and how?

Sat Oct 21, 2017 12:28 am

Hi, I’m new here. Pretty new to the gardening game. I’m from Australia so the seasons may be a little different depending on where you’re from. So I have these lilies which we purchased during winter (May) and they already had flowers on them. After some research I found it strange that they flowered in winter because they are spring / summer flowers? As they died we picked them off and kept only green leaves and healthy flowers as I believe this is a general rule for basically any plant. Since the bloom is over, we have had just the stem and leaves which I’ve left. Now I’ve noticed some new growth at the base of the stems. Was I or am I supposed to cut the stalks at any point? Do I leave them as they are? If someone can tell me what I am supposed to do and how to do it, I would greatly appreciate it. Please see photos. Thanks.

Maybe add a light fertilizer in winter?

To prune lilies, deadhead any perishing Flowers all through the developing season, which will energize new development and improve the presence of your greenhouse. To deadhead a Flower, pursue the stalk of the Flower right down to the base of the plant. At that point, utilize little, lightweight shears to cut the stalk off ideal at the base.
