Have just bought a pot of summer flowering lilies. Card says to cut off flower stems when petals dropped. Does that mean to cut right down, or part way?





just under where the flowers are , it stops them putting the food into the seeds as you will cut that part away ...

The rest of the leaves will need to stay for a while to feed the bulbs and flower buds for next year.
