Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: How to plant hardy lilies:
Plant hardy lily bulbs in autumn.
The ground should be dug and leaf mold or peat moss added. Plant stem-rooting kinds, like Lilium regale, with the top of the bulbs about 6" under ground; bottom rooting bulbs should be planted about 2 or 3" under ground. Sand placed below and above the bulbs helps drainage and deters rot.
