lily seedsPlace seed at least a half an inch apart and cover with the mix. Cover the pot with a layer of plastic.
Place your pot in a warm place until germination begins.  Then put your pot under lights or in a window.  The little lilies will appear like blades of grass coming up!

Lily seedlings at Lilyfield Farm. Transplant to your garden when weather permits.  Remember to water them their first year out.  They will have tiny little bulbs.
Expect some bloom the coming year with more in the next season.

This photo:  These seedlings were kept in the shade of our deck to conserve moisture and allow any late seeds to germinate.  They were planted out later in summer.
