Planting and growing instructions: 'Tree like' Lily Collection (Pack of 12 Bulbs) from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Oriental Trumpet Hybrid Lily Bulbs should be planted as soon as possible. Ideally in the Spring but can be planted up until the Autumn.
  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Oriental Trumpet Hybrid Lilies can tolerate most soil types, Acidic or Alkaline.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs about 8" apart. Space the groupings at least 3 feet apart.
  • If planting in pots, plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Plant care: 'Tree like' Lily Collection (Pack of 12 Bulbs) from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Lilies can tolerate very cold conditions but they do not like to get wet.
  • If planting in borders in the garden, the soil must be well drained and, preferably, humus rich.
  • If planting in pots, make sure lilies are kept moist but do not get waterlogged.
  • Lilies prefer to be planted in a location with at least half a day’s full sunshine, if it’s a bit too shady they will lean their stems towards the sun.
  • Lily bulbs do not like to be dried out so they must be kept in soil at all times.
  • Try to plant your lilies where they will dry out after rain to prevent Botrytis, a fungus that spots the leaves. If you do see brown spots on your leaves, spray with a fungicide recommended for roses.
    If planting in pots, it may be an idea to tilt the pots on their side in the winter to prevent waterlog.
  • When the Lily has finished flowering, cut any seed heads back and allow the foliage to die back naturally. Do not be tempted to cut the stem back until stems becomes hollow and brown.
  • After a few years of flowering, you may find the Oriental Trumpets Lily produces less blooms, it may be time to lift your bulbs and divide them by breaking off the bulblets. All the bulbs will then need replanting.
  • To prevent Lily Beetles from damaging your lilies, we recommend using the Lily Beetle Prevention Spray. This Spray (Grazers G4) will also stimulate growth of your lilies.
  • You can feed your lilies with a Tomato Feed to stimulate and strengthen your lilies when you start to see signs of growth. Make up your tomato feed with half the recommended dilution (written on the instructions on the bottle) and feed once every 3 weeks.

Tree Lilly

This question was asked by
M. Millward

I wish to buy some tree lilly’s but not sure which. I live in Blackpool and plant my lilly’s in containers to protect them from mice and frost.
I am looking mainly for scent but also colour but mainly scent to fill my small garden. Can you surggest some types please. I would like them to reach at least 6′ tall.

Hi Mark
All our tree lilies are fantastic. Usually you find the whiter the flower, the stronger the scent but Tree lilies are all highly scented . Have you seen our Tree lily collections which are a good offer at a slightly reduced price?

This question was asked by
C. Caddick

I bought some of the above lily’s from the Southport Flower show. When I opened the bag they have grown about 2 inches. I have planted them in pots will they flower this year ?

Hi there – yes they have just started sprouting and that’s absolutely fine. I’m pleased to hear you have planted them straight away as they will be in flower in about 8 to 10 weeks.

Novice to growing lilies

This question was asked by
H. Devey

Hi Just discovered your web site, I am a Lilly fan but a complete novice gardener at 76 years old. I am about to take a weeks holiday but I will be ordering your Lilly collection when I return also the cure for the Lilly Beetle. Expect my order in Sept.
Regards, Harry

Thank you for your email Harry. All lily bulb orders are dispatched in the spring next year now. Lilies are so easy to grow, especially if you start with the Tree-like lilies as they are happy in any well-drained soil in a sunny position.

When to divide lilies

This question was asked by
Hazel Hobday

I have some tree lilies which clearly need dividing. I was going to wait until the spring but should I do it now?
The plants have stopped flowering and they have really struggled with fungus on the leaves this year so they are quite brown and bedraggled already.

Wait until everything has died back completely. Ideally this will be in the Autumn, then you can divide your lily bulbs and replant them. Perhaps try feeding them with a tomato feed when you start seeing signs of growth next year.

TREE LILLES

This question was asked by
T. LETHERBY

I am looking for tree lillies that have a long flowering period and are reasonably tall in height. What varieties would you recommend?

Good afternoon,

All the tree lilies will flower about the same length of time. I would recommend the Conca D’or Lily for a good strong, all-round lily. However, our Tree Lily collection is very good value for money and contains 4 different varieties:

Nymph (harts1027)

Robina (harts1029)

Manissa (harts1025)

Cocossa (SKU17672)

Which soil type for Tree lily bulbs

This question was asked by
R. Fleckner

Will my Lily bulbs grow in a fairly heavy soil and without ericaceous compost. The border was composted thoroughly a month ago.
I ask because I’ve never grown lily bulbs before!

Good news, Tree-like lily bulbs are happy in any soil type as long as it is free-draining. These gorgeous lilies don’t like to get waterlogged. Hope that helps.
