@Longfield Gardens

The lily of the valley is a plant that's both easy to grow and invasive. Planting them in pots or containers allows you to keep them compact and bounded to a specific area. Consider using barriers like pavers or plastic edges to keep them from spreading too much if you're planting them in open ground of your garden.



If you find yellowing foliage or individual flower stalks that have dried up, cut them off. Dead flowers and yellow foliage inhibit the growth of this plant.
