My old tree lilies are about a foot high. The new ones are lagging behind. Some  joy liles planted six weeks ago are just poking through. Patience is needed. Its still only Spring. Poking around will damage the feeder roots.

When I was a student in Manchester, I was warned to always lock the doors(on my morris minor) before stopping at the traffic lights next to the Harp lager place, near Moss side, because the locals had a habit of getting into any empty passenger seats  if you had to stop at the traffic lights.
