Last Year I had the Himalayan Lilly flower beautifully. Do I leave it where I grew it? If so what fertiliser do I give it. I live at Tapanui West Otago New Zealand



By Himalayan Lily, Biddy, do you mean Cardiocrinum giganticum, check it on the internet? If you do then I am afraid that I have bad news for you; it is monocarpic ie after flowering the main bulb dies. The bulb has produced many little bulblets which will grow to flowering size but this will take several years and it is best to rescue a few and grow them up in pots.
