Oriental lilies prefer a moist, free draining, neutral to acid soil that is rich in organic matter. Prior to planting, add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil to give your tree lilies® the best start. When growing lilies in containers, use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2. Lily bulbs should be planted at a depth of approximately 3 times their own height and 15cm (6") apart. Planting deeply helps to protect the bulb during particularly hot periods. Choose a sheltered, sunny position where lilies will grow with their heads in the sun and their roots in the shade.
Feed and water Oriental lily bulbs regularly throughout the growing season, keeping them moist at all times. Deadhead faded blooms at the base of the flower where they join the stem to prevent the development of seed pods. When cutting Oriental lily flowers for indoor arrangements, it is important to leave a third of the stem intact in order to feed the bulb for the following year. After flowering leave the stems intact until they begin to yellow in autumn. Reduce watering and move containers of lilies to a cool, frost free position over winter. Lilies grown in borders can be lifted, cleaned and stored for the winter, however in mild areas most lilies should survive outdoors provided that the soil is not too wet. A mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost should be applied in spring. Divide and repot container grown lilies into fresh compost every other year. Caution: All parts of Oriental lilies are toxic to cats.

  1. Rotten

    By Daniel Thorpe 30-12-2015

    I have just noted the last persons review and felt I needed to leave feedback as I had exactly the same issue. 3 out of 9 were rotten and when they replaced all were planted and none grew! Dug up and all rotten. Expensive waste of money.

  2. Poor

    By Alan Hudson 21-12-2015

    Last year I rejected the first two deliveries of the bulbs they were rotten to the core, the third I accepted and planted. The result were two spindly plants with below standard flowers. Having dealt with this firm for many years to say I was disappointed was an understatement There were other order components that were below standard also In view of this I am seriously considering looking at other companies.to fulfil my requirements this year.
