I have 3 lilies in a pot, not sure what sort, but they grow up to a metre and flop, I stake them but it spoils their natural beauty, I gave them a drop of tomato feed every few weeks, could that bd why?

I have been lucky enough to have  hogs for  the last five years or so, they sleep at the bottom of the garden in a ready built home and under a  shrub,,.I put plenty of leaves in the autumn as near as I can and they reward me by coming every night  just outside the patio doors to eat leftover bird food, ie mealy worm raisins sunflower hearts suit , plus dried cat food .one year I had mum and three babes,  lovely.

You could train a pyracantha against the trellis its evergreen with pretty flowers  in spring and berries in winter.

I am always unsure when to mulch, will I damage new shoots if I cover them with compost.
