Lily beetles and general tiredoutness have just about done for my lilies, so I won't be dabbling with them anymore. They don't pass my cost/benefit test where I weigh up the pleasure I get against the work and bother involved. Did you know that 20 years ago lily beetles were a rare sight? Although they are lilies Agapanthus seem to be immune to them here, even where they share a pot. In the latter case a single agapanthus , planted in a small space with 6 lily bulbs has noe all but taken over. The cuckoo in the nest. I now grow loads of Agapanthus and the produce lots of babies for me to grow my collection and give away to mates.
