I grow some of the tall lilies, some of them do not need staking as the stems are very broad, but others do. I cannot remember the names of the ones we have, the blackbirds have stone the labels long since!
I feed ours in the Spring with pelleted organic chicken manure (as given to everything in the garden), and then again with a high potash feed once the flowers are done. Nearly all my lilies are grown in pots.
Don't forget to watch out for the red devil, otherwise known as lily beetle, they are not fussy as to whether the lilies are 20 cms or 2 meters tall, they'll have the lot given half a chance.
