  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained soil enriched with leaf mould ora loam-based potting compost, such as John Innes no2
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July

    Stunning sprays of scented, turkscap, blackish-red flowers with green centres and white margins appear in midsummer. The flowers make a fabulous display at the back of the border, or grouped in a container. This great summer-flowering bulb is universally loved because of its showy flowers that light up the garden, but like all lilies, is susceptible to lily beetle.

    The RSPCA have recently reported that all parts of lilies can be fatal to cats, including the flower, leaves and pollen. For more information visit Rspca.org

  • Garden care: Bulbs are best planted in autumn but can also be planted in spring. Plant them 2-3 times their own depth and the equivalent spacing between bulbs.

    Lilies

    Hi I have grown Lilies for the 1st time this year. Can you advise me if they are annuals or bi-annuals? What do you do after flowering? Kind regards Robert

      Hello Robert, These are bulbous perennials, so will carry on year after year. They will be starting to die back soon, but you should still be feeding with a high potash fertiliser now. Leave them where they are and make sure they are well watered - in winter you can cut this back a little - and they should come back again next year. I hope this helps. Helen
