Hi wiser than me Mumsnetting gardeners. Yesterday I bought 2 Asiatic Lily pots from Homebase. They were reduced to £1.75 each but I thought they were still to flower. Now I'm not sure if these are flower buds or post flowering seed heads confused I know they come back year after year so I've not completely wasted my money but was hoping for some value this year - I already have 3 pots of faithfuls who turn up year after year but I think they're another type and they haven't even thought of flowering yet. I've attached picture for diagnosis - Please help!! struggling with pic. hang on!

they shouldnt have flowered yet as it is still a bit early for lilies. feed and water and place in the sun and check for lily beetles.

I have some from last year - they are just coming up now with low level leaves. They probably won't flower until July.

Mine are also still in bud. And come up year after year. Sounds like you got a good deal.
