I live in wales (cardiff) the lilys flowered well this year but they have all turned yellow, with no new growth have I lost them or can they be saved



Hello Coombs have they been dryer than usual? They hate wet conditions with a good well drained soil. but yellow streaking is usually a sign of draught. keeping them moist during the growing season keeps them from becoming stunted or turning streaky yellow. feed them in spring with bulb food as the shoots emerge. Good luck

Well surely they're just dying back after flowering, ready to rest in the winter, aren't they? The topgrowth does disappear in the autumn.
