My oriental lilies are turning brown!

| planted 2 in pots a couple of weeks ago and as they are starting to flower they are turning brown
I planted them in John Innes no 3 but now realise I should have put them in peat-free compost
Will this be the problem and if I re pot them, will they still be ok? thanks x



ji3 should be fine. i have bought lilies from gc and they have always been in a peat based compost. so i dont think that is the cause of the browning. could it be wind damage do you think?

I will move them to a more sheltered spot and see if this helps - it has been extremely windy lately
thanks for the advice
