Stargazer Lilies- Pruning

Q: My ‘Stargazer’ lilies were beautiful this year after being planted last fall. Do I prune back the seed pods?

A: Yes, but only the seed pods and faded flowers. The leaves along the tall stem are absorbing sunshine and storing it in the lily bulb so it blooms again next summer. When frost kills the upper part of the plant in November it can be cut to the ground.
