Talkback: How to deadhead lilies

Posted: 03/09/2012 at 14:27

one thing to remember when dead heading lilies or in fact coming into contact with them is to be mindful that the stem ens will leave a nasty mark on you with their pollen.If they do best to brush off lightly do not wet.dead heading is just taking off the old head and beware of that dreaded Lilly beetle or you will have no lilies next year!

I to lost my crop to a fly pest that lays a white jelly on the fruit.What I failed to do as I normally do on apple and any fruit tree to prevent it is to tie an oily (veg) cloth around its trunk or as my poor gooseberries one year were ruined by saw flies and I now do one spray in spring to prevent attack.
