Cultivation Instructions:

Plant indoors: Lilies are very hardy and withstand the cold so can be planted direct into soils outside in gardens and borders.

Plant Outside: Lilies are a very versatile garden plant and they are ideal when grown in borders or containers around the house and garden. Once planted lilies are best left undisturbed for a number of years. Cultivate soils to a depth of 25cms and plant bulbs 10-15cms deep and 10cms apart. In heavy soils add humus matter and dig in well. Lilies prefer to be grown in well drained soils in the cooler or shadier parts of the garden. Lilies do like to get some sun during the day so very shaded areas are not recommended.

Care Tips:

Protect the young shoots from slugs and snails and remember to feed the bulbs with bone-meal or something similar during the flowering period.

In heavy soils add a handful of grit to the hole before planting.
