Top Up the Container
Cover the bulbs and top up the container to about 2 in. below the rim with potting soil. Place your pots on "feet" in a sheltered spot and move them into the sun as soon as the shoots appear.
Water every couple of days, and apply a tomato fertilizer to your lily pots every week during the summer. Keep in a sheltered area during winter, and in spring, renew the top 2 in. of compost. Lily beetle is their main pest. Look out for these bright red beetles and pick them off as soon as you see them.
