Planting

Plant at approx 15cm deep.

Soil Type

Fertile, well drained soil

When planting, each bulb should be surrounded by a little bit of sharp sand both under and above the bulb to keep slugs away and to ward off excessive wetness. As most liliums are stem rooting we strongly recommend you plant at 15cm deep.
They give a much better display when planted in clumps of 3, 6 or 12 bulbs (45cm apart). Lilium bulbs will greatly appreciate the shelter of low growing shrubs or other plants near their roots. In active growth, apply water freely and it is advised that every two weeks you apply a high potash liquid fertiliser.
