Stargazer lily. We had a windy day yesterday and my Stargazer was in bloom, until the wind blew the blooms away. Where do i cut? So another bloom will show up?  -

Hi Deb,

Don'tchya just hate that when it happens??
Such is life in the garden................
But cut it just under where the flower was is where I do it.
Leaves the whole stem to put back into the bulb as nutrient...

Nope, it won't grow back [tears]
Not until next year! [Cool] [clappy]

Gosh, mine are juuustttttt starting to grow up
tall! Won't be a bit for mine!!!


Any other lilies you got??? [critic]

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

I planted some pampas grass for the first time this year. I was told that in the fall you can burn it to the ground and it will come up in the spring, is that wise? Or should you just cut it down?

Have just been blessed with the amazing bloom of the spider lilly! I feel like a kid with a new toy, this is my first experience with this delicate bulb. I am a transplanted Northerner and am delighted with all the new flowers that are available inspite of the heat/humidity in Houston, TX. It took one bulb about 6 months in a 3 gallon pot on a protected patio before it sent up a stem to bloom. The bloom brings a smile to my face each morning before I go to work! [wayey]

I have 4 star gazer lillys.they smell GREAt when weeding& nose level with them.
I have the crinuim spider lillys too got one up with 3 fowers 4 done bloomed& got 2 more fixing to send stalks up& have a total of 8(2 with babies on the side).I love them.mine open at night and smell like jasmine& are around my pond

as to pampass grass.I think folks burn it every few years cause whenthe center dies it don't bloom as well.someone may know the true reason.I like the pink pampass one plant will have someday just need 2 for each side of driveway.

I will age ungracefully until I become an old woman in a small garden..doing whatever the Hell I want!
