My LILY BULBS came over the week end, and so I will doing my final plantings of the year.  To plant lily bulbs, dig a deep hole 8-10" deep in a well-drained area that gets full sun, or, in my case, I have found that my Orientals do best in filtered sunlight.  Their colors will be deeper, and last longer if they receive some shade, or filtered sunlight during the day.  I always add a handful of bone meal, mixed in well with the soil, to each hole.  Fill with enough enriched soil to be able to plant the bulb at a depth of 6-8 inches.  Water in well.  Mulch and mark the place you have planted the lily.  You will be well-rewarded next June, July or August with beautiful, aromatic blooms!
