well I wouldn't be able to guide you guys for Lahore but I could share my experience, and I believe we learn something new every day, so what I would suggest keep on growing and learning liliums, as per my experience of two years, I start plantation at the end of September at weekly intervals for regular bloom and dig them when the foliage completely turn yellow, now for this I don't have any specific time whenever they turn yellow I just dig them up treat them with anti fungus and anti rotting compound and then put them in coco peat and store them in refrigerator for next year.

hope this may help.

How did they behave as a cut flower, did other buds come to bloom?

Thank you Arif sb

Asim I may not be able to compare with the Fahad's one, but I could describe mine as I don't know the exact variety of Fahad's Lily, mine one is tooo fragrant, quite big in size around a feet across, its been more than three years I m keeping this variety with me successfully and I have brought it to Pakistan last year, it has its unique texture having red dots on its petals. also please refer to the following photo, if there will be any question that I could answer please do let me know I will try my level best.
