Kaffir Lilly


Hello, I purchased a kaffir lilly in a pot and in flower, it was one of those mad moments, now I dont know what to do with it, shall I leave it in the pot, or split it, its quite big, or put it in the ground now, and what soil.
I am now the proud owner of FALSTAFF rose, and CROCUS ROSE, for my new cottage bed, I have also put in AMBER QUEEN, and BLESSINGS, lots of mixed colour I know, but the madder the better. I am off to work now, UGH so will reply tomorrow, thanks all.

I'd get it in the ground now Patricia, if it's that big perhaps split it or wait until spring to split it.

Your roses should give a good display next year.
Sorry I don't know about Kafir lily.

i'd split it before putting it into the ground as disturbing the plant again wont make it too 'happy'. I bought one at this time last year and i have 3 small clumps now as i split it into 3.
