DD: if you empty the lily pot/ tub carefully onto an empty compost bag (or similar), you'll probably find that the 'parent' bulbs now have several younger 'offspring' nestling around their toes! The youngsters will grow steadily (& will normally take a full season or two before they come into bloom on their own account) - but they'll do a lot better if you set them spaced tidily in a separate pot of their own. Treat both the sets of bulbs to good quality general compost; best kept on the dry side over winter. Beware those wretched white grubs of the lily beetle though - squishing is all they deserve!! Enjoy!!
*You can probably detect some adult lily beetle damage on these blooms - but as I'm only growing for my own pleasure I don't use anything other than 'physical' measures against the culprits!!
