Flowers on TV

Gotta brag---local ABC Weatherlady has a bit where she shows garden results from local viewers.

I took some pics of my Wife's efforts and submitted them---going to be on tonight's 6:00 PM newscast channel 7 Local 24 news.

This is from back when the Lily's were in bloom.

I have an eastern exposure and my in ground lilies do wonderful there.

The back patio gets very little sunlight and they do well there, also. The difference is physical size of plant and blossom. IMO lilies do not do well in containers. Yes they bloom but not as prolific and not as large.

This plant is 5'6" tall and had around ten flowers. Eastern exposure zero morning shade

These are directly adjacent to the first picture and are first year flowers.

I fertilize with Miracle-gro year around-I do not need growing plants to fertilize. In early spring I use 13-13-13. The soil has been planted for 20+ years and it is rich and drains really well.
