East Lothian, United Kingdom
I have a large clump of day lilies which should be out by now. However the buds are very deformed and do not look as if they will open properly. I have removed a couple of the buds and looked inside where there is slime and lots of tiny maggots. Last year we had tiny black insects on the day liles which were impossible to remove with any of the sprays I used and in the end we scraped them off without fingers. At least we had some flowers last year but this year the infestation of whatever it is seems worse. Is there any hope of saving the lilies and what do you use to get rid of these things?
