I have a potted easter lily. The flowers are just about done. Should it be cut down? If so how far? What about guidelines for planting it outside?

Just dig a hole a little deeper than the potting of the lily. I wouldn’t cut back the green until they turn by themselves. Otherwise, the bulb may not regenerate to produce blooms for next Spring.

My mom has some planted in her flower bed.They come back every year and they multiply.Now we have several little plant too. When you dig the hole,it wouldn’t hurt to dig a little deeper than necessary and put some good potting soil in it and cover the hole up with it too.And then water it.

Usually what happens is that the green stem and leaves die down. Then a new stem pushes through the soil (the summer after you have planted the lily in your garden). I’ve had once-potted Easter lilies bloom the summer after they have been planted outside in the spring. I water them and usually just use regular soil when planting.

Agree with the others. I would also snap off the spent blooms. The leaves help provide the energy for next year’s blooms.
good luck
