LILLIUM (lilies)

LILLIUM (lilies)

LILLIUM (lilies)

Lilies require a fertile well-drained soil with an uninterrupted supply of moisture while they are growing. They should be planted 6"-8" deep. In heavy soils, sand must be added below the bulb to prevent water-logging. Most make excellent subjects for pots. We recommend soaking the bulb for one hour in plain water before planting. All require a regular supply of water when in growth and benefit from a liquid feed.

(Species lily)  One of the most spectacular of lilies. It produces up to five huge recurved trumpets of greeny-cream, each with a deep maroon centre. It requires an acid soil. We grow it under a North facing wall. It is stoloniferous and you never know quite where the stems will emerge. We have grown it under a Rhododendron.  It is not suitable for pots as the shoots are most likely to ome through the drainage hole..


Flowers: July

Price: £3.50 each; 3 = £9.00



Award of Garden Merit(Trumpet Lily)  Probably the best known of all trumpet liles. Large heads of glistening white, strongly scented trumpet flowers shaded yellow at the throat with a soft rose exterior. One of the very best all rounders for pots or borders. It is lime tolerant. Plant the bulbs at least 10cm deep in fertile soil in sun or part shade. Water well if in pots.

Height: 4’

Flowers: Jun-Jul

Price: 3 = £7.00; 10 = £21.00
