Growing at a glance…
Lily bulbs will greatly appreciate the shelter of low growing shrubs or other plants near their roots. In active growth, apply water freely a high potash liquid fertilizer every two weeks or so. When planting, each bulb should surrounded with a little sharp sand both under and above the bulb to keep slugs away and to ward off excessive wetness. As most lilies are stem rooting, we strongly recommend you plant about 15cm deep. They give a much better display when planted in clumps of 3, 6 or 12 bulbs, spaced 45cm apart. Plant from December to April to see them appear in summer.
