I planted them, probably not deep enough, and they have not
appeared.Very disappointing The same goes for the crocuses, which I was really looking forward to but the squirrels ate them. We have carrion crows in our garden, which I feed as they are intelligent birds, and I have seen them lift the square of turf off the bulb, toss the bulb away, then bury a piece of food in the hole and recover it with the turf square. The wood anemones grew leaves but no flowers this year.

1 of the bulbs never grow, one grow but was not a very good plant , it looked very sickly. The 3rd one was OK but I don't think I buy these again. Which was very disappointing as I had looked for these lilies for a look time. They seem hard to find.
