i have a few in pots should I lift them or leave and feed ?

On plant Lilium



Be fine to leave them in the pots if you don't need them for other planting. Give them a liquid feed and let them die back naturally

Give the occaisional feed of liquid tomato fertiliser until they have died back. This will feed the bulb for next year. Personally, I prefer to repot into new compost every year but sometimes pressure of work means that this doesn't happen.
