My Arum lillies which are about 5-7 yrs old, stopped flowering last year. Any idea why? I have two big pots which have been flowering well for years. Last year they grew loads of healthy leaves and looked wonderful, filling the pots with loads of greenery, but no flowers.

Assuming you mean Zantedeschia, how long have they been in the same pots? It might be time to turn them out, cut them in half and repot the sections in fresh compost.

I must have been not quite with it yesterday - I see I put 'here' instead of 'hear', I'm ashamed of myself. As for notorious or infamous, somehow, they seem slightly more attractive adjectives than famous at my age, lol!
