Ornamental Lillies

I bought some ornamental Lillies (Gardeners' World Offer :)  ) and they have been fantastic. Pink and White huge flowers....they are now past their best and some have dropped petals.


My questions are, shall I leave them to die down or not? Is it ok to keep them in the pots they are in and will they need new compost next year? Can they stay outside over winter time or should I put them in a shed?

Japanese Anenomes

Thankyou Paul B3 and Ladybird4.


I like the flowers so wont cut them down. There are lots and lots of Snowdrops where they are and dont want to disturb them in the Spring so probably late Autumn then?

Advice please.


There are four 'clumps' of Japanese Anenomes in the garden which this year have grown to be HUGE.


They are just coming into flower and are very pretty but because they are overgrowing everything else Id like to divide them. ( new home already found for unwanted pieces )


When is the best time to do this and exactly how is the correct way..ie should I chop them down first or just dig them up and slice with a spade?

Please can you name this plant?

We find  the most popular food is Wilkos suet...but the pink sort. Its the first thing to go and isnt too expensive either bag or box.
