Do not throw away you Easter lily plant
or Bulbs after it is done blooming –
Plant outdoors in your garden
and enjoy year after year.
Here are some tips from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension: “ Easter lilies can be replanted outside after the blooms are gone. Plant the Easter lily outdoors as soon as the ground can be worked. Select a sunny site with well-drained soil. Set the top of the bulb six-inches below the soil surface. Cut off the old flowers, but leave the stem and leaves. Do not cut back the stem until it dies down in the fall, and then cut it off at the soil surface. After the soil surface freezes in late fall, mulch the soil and do not remove the mulch until new growth begins in the spring.”
