Orient-Trumpet Lilium hybrid 'Mr Cas'
O-T Lilium 'Silk Road' has been a lot better in previous years but any flowers at all are bonus this year
O-T 'Table Dance'
The first lily beetles have been spotted here. They would love to munch those seedlings!
Do you mean they've just shown up in your area, Claire... or that you'd just seen the first of the year? Hateful things. I killed a couple back in March even - they emerge on the surface of the soil on warm days - though they're out in full force now that the lilies and fritillarias are up and growing.
During my lunch hour, went out and squashed about a dozen of these beasties on my Fritillaria crassifolia ssp. kurdica.
