with much fear and trepidation, i invested in 300+ lily of the valley pips for the front of my old victorian house this spring. there are 100 year old trees which make the whole street majestic, though pretty shady… even the grass doesn’t like to grow. my research indicated that lily of the valley could be a perfect choice, however they just haven’t done well. i can’t find any advice on what they need… most info indicates that they’re so "easy, and not picky". i’m anxious to know if there’s anything i should do for them especially before the growing season is over. i’ll be heart broken if i lose them! many thanks for your insights!
