Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant 15cm (6in) deep in well-drained soil enriched with leaf mould or well-rotted organic matter. If you have moist/boggy soil, plant with plenty of grit or try planting the bulbs on their side to prevent moisture being trapped inside the bulb.
Care Tips Likes a cool root run. When planting, envelop the bulbs in sharp sand (particularly in heavy soils). Just leave them where they are from one year to the next, or plant them in a pot and sink them in the ground somewhere very prominent in the garden for lifting out of the wet and cold until the following spring. Remove seed heads unless required and cut down stems once foliage dies down. Plants may be affected by lily beetle, so keep your eyes peeled!
Flowering July - August
Vase Life When cutting, leave enough stem and foliage for photosynthesis and food storage. Strip anthers from the stamens to prevent sticky pollen. Lilies all have a good, long vase life. Remove their stamens to prolong it even further and top up/change their water regularly.
