    An incredibly popular variety with large, almost pure white trumpets with orange anthers. This is a form of Lilium regale, which does not have the pink flush to the outside of the petals, but it has retained every ounce of the sumptuously strong scent of its parent. A great choice for white borders, and looks spectacular at night when the flowers really seem to glow.

    The RSPCA have 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: Lilies can be planted at any time from early autumn, to mid-spring. Planting in autumn often helps them settle in and become better established before they start to put on their new spring growth, but spring planting is a better option if your soil is heavy and wet during winter. Choose a sunny spot, preferably where the plant receives a little light shade at its base, and plant each bulb 15-20cm deep in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Space them between 15 - 30cm intervals and provide support before the flowers appear. Deadhead the faded blooms promptly and cut the dead stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.

      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

      • A:

        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

    Containment, rather than complete eradication, is the key to pest management in an organic garden. A certain number of pests have to be tolerated because they are food for the predators – kill all the pests and there is nothing for the predators to eat. T

    Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
