My lilies haven't started moving yet. I dug one up today, and there was no shoot at all yet.

Thinking of buying

Try and put them in a block, 3 x 4. I'm not confident so few will pollinate well. try tapping the plants when the male flowers open to disperse the pollen.

I rotate sweet corn, onions, and courgette/pumpkins around the sunniest beds. Beans, brassicas except caulis and potatoes will cope with less sun.

I should add I use two packets and plant in a block, 7 rows of 10. The odd plant, or planted in a long line, will not pollinate well, because it is wind pollinated.

I have had sweetcorn swift, two years running. One wet, one hot. Both years it did really well. It needs the sunniest position you can give it.
