M y lilies are in two clumps of three, in a mixed border, and somehow only one of the lilies has had beetles so far. I have just been out to check some different lilies in pots elsewhere in the garden, and they're OK.
No matter how mixed the arrangement is, snails always seem to find their favourite plants. I have a single blue phlox on which most of the leaves, from the bottom up, were chomped off in a short time. I put down a few slug pellets and next morning removed about 6 snails from around its base.
