Welcome to the fascinating world of the friendly fellow gardeners, ski (sounds American to me)-- I agree with dodge (not related to de soto/ plymouth, are you) :rolleyes: : October is a good time to set lilies out; I pretty much let mine be, since they like to be left alone. Had bad luck replanting some martagons a couple of years ago.
