|Lilium 'Red Velvet'|
The soap on a stick idea came from Taltree Arboretum & Gardens:
1. cut bars of soap (I used Irish Spring) into icecube sized chunks and wrap them in pieces of cheesecloth.
2. tie the soap pieces onto stakes of some kind.
3. place the stakes close to the plants you want to protect.
Anyway, 'Red Velvet' is an Asiatic triploid hybrid that was bred in 1964. Which means it was introduced when my Mom was baking me red velvet cake every year for my birthday.
