Hi

It sounds like your lilies need to be repotted. The best time to do this is in the early spring just as they are breaking dormancy.  At that time, take out the pots, dump out the plants and you should be able to divide the roots into smaller plants. Repot in fresh soil and cover the soil with an inch of gravel to keep the soil from washing away.
