I was just wondering if anyone here had ever tried growing lilies from cut flowers (rather than bulbs)? I was given a bunch of lilies almost a week ago and they're now out and the scent is gorgeous and very strong, and I'd love to grow some in the garden but don't know what kind they are (they're pale pink).

Anyone tried this?

    Never tried it, but some peeps say you can propagate from leaves, but you'd likrly not see flowers for 3 or 4 years


    The final propagation method is common to many other garden plants. You can propagate using the stems or leaves too. Pull off a leaf with a little stem tissue attached, dip it in rooting hormone, and put in in wet sand or a moist potting soil. Or take a stem piece and do the same. After about a month a little bulb and roots will form. The little bulb can be transplanted and treated as a new plant.
