Bought some lilly bulbs last year, forgot about them and got round to planting probably about 3 months too late. In fairness they did develop and flower. However this year they produced fine leaves but no flowers. Whats the verdict.

Perhaps you didn't plant them deep enough

Could very well be that, cant remember although I do employ 3 times the length of the bulbs.. Will digging them up and planting them deeper solve the prob next year.

Always prepare the soil.
Select good quality bulbs.
never remove the foliage to tidy up laet die down naturally.
Mulch soil and water in dry conditions.
fed with tomato food.
dont overcrowd.
