DEAR Lily Thief,

Taking plants from the Glass Barrel Community Garden seems to be your favourite pastime.

I really hope it brings you so much pleasure and enjoyment, as much as it would have done in the community garden.

As an Adriatic Lily goes, it does not like too much water and will need re-potting next spring.

Feed the plant with food especially for lilies and make sure it gets full sun.

If in future you would like any more plants just leave a note, at night, on one of the benches and I will gladly take cuttings or split plants for you.

Also as a lily-lover if you could by chance, out of the kindness of your heart, return the plant under the cover of darkness, the community will be most grateful.

Steve Fuller,

Head of community gardening
