Care Tips Likes a cool root run. When planting envelope the bulbs in sharp sand or your will lose them (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.
Flowering August - September
Vase Life When cutting, leave enough stem and foliage for photosynthesis and food storage. Strip anthers from the stamens to prevent sticky pollen.

The bulbs were a good size and grew away strongly. The resulting plants are multi-stemmed and are just about to flower (end of July). I have planted these lilies direct into the ground once they had grown on in a pot, and are healthy plants.

Bulbs looked OK, but having followed instructions for planting so carefully I am disappointed in the poor show of flowers- not a happy customer!

All three bulbs grew well and flowered beautifully, so I have ordered more bulbs from you this Autumn. The packaging was good too.
