Watering Plants That Have Been Wintered Indoors

I have some potted Asiatic Lilies that have been sitting in my basement all winter. I sat the pots out today (3/17/10) because it's about 65 degrees. The soil looks dry, when should I start watering them?

Hardiness Zone: 7a

Yes, just don't move them outside until you're sure the danger of frost has gone.

Be very careful starting too much water too early plants will become leggy. If the soil is dry about 2 inches down in the pot apply just a little water no food and wait till just before frost is gone. you can call your agriculture agent in nearest larger town and he will tell you exactly. I live in zone 8 and I just started mine.
