Sowing, Seeds, Planting Preferably plant to 15cm (6in)depth in deep, rich 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 seedheads unless required and cut down stems once foliage dies down. Plants may be affected by lily beetle, so keep your eyes peeled!
Flowering June - July
Vase Life When cutting, leave enough stem and foliage for photosynthesis and food storage. Strip anthers from the stamens to prevent sticky pollen.

3bulbs arrived one in very poor condition. Complained to SR and received another 3 instantly. 5 stars. However! Only 3 grew into plants so that is dire deserving of 1 star. Sorry, customer service good, product not. I am experienced allotment and garden planter

Really disappointed in the lily bulbs - when they came they appeared really big and healthy so had high expectations. All three lilies grew, (but only to a height of approx 18inches) but only one bulb flowered. However, the flowers were stunning and smelt gorgeous, so I can imagine how glorious it would have been if they had all done that.Will keep fingers crossed for next year

The bulbs looked plump and healthy but haven't yet flowered. The drought is probably to blame as my garden is too big to allow for regular watering of all beds. So probably just bad luck.

Only two of the six bulbs flowered, although that could have been because I bought them quite late in the season, hopefully they will do better next year.
