Will let them do there thing for this year as they are in full bud,but once over will plant them somewhere,my garden is very sheltered but still have severe frosts as I am in the midlands.Slugs and me big time war!!

Lilies I just love them,but like you I planted what I thought were just ordinary lilies turned out to be tree lillies they grew and grew and were magnificant however tried to over winter them in a shed?? today have have from the original 40 now to about 10??they are good and healthy but only about 4' high nowhere like last year when they reached 6'.I spend all my time looking for those red devils that eat them and have squashed many but the leaves are going yellow on some,must be a secret somewhere to keep these beautiful plants going.Tina

Wow,hope were talking about the same tree here?? it has when healthy some lovely red feathered blooms,well maybe not feathered but cone shaped and bright red.Looks so pretty,will try and get picture on here so you can see but not good at this sort of thing so may not work for me,sorry a num nuts at computers.I did dig out a very large shoot about 4' high and another one only about a foot high,both really healthy but in the wrong place.If it is the same tree,I can imagine in London must be a nightmare however I live in the country surrounded by fields so a few extra trees not too much of a problem,just don't want a forest of this type in my front garden just the one.Tina

Hi there guys,thanks to you all and your advice have been pretty much in control of this years garden,however I have or did have the most magnificant Kingdom of Heaven tree in my front garden,I noticed last year it took a time to come into leaf and when it did it was late and did'nt last long?? This year it just looks dead although there are a few tiny leaves coming on.My immediate neighbor's is in full leaf?? There are lots of little off shoots growing every where in the lawn which I just mow over,so whats the verdict?? I love this tree but it's looking pretty rediculous right now.Sorry don't know the correct name for this tree but sure you know what I mean.

Oh wow thanks for the reply,yes I thought be pushing it with the fuscias,but I will certainly have a go,just the weather has been against me and bless them they have still all been flowering and was so reluctant to do anything with them,just also the ones I have are so beautifull dersperatly would like to hang on to them,also sorry to be a pain but what do I do with my hardy ones?? They are all still in flower and some so pretty.Tina
