How to plant Oriental Lilies

  • Oriental 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 Lilies tend to grow exceptionally well in pots and tubs.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Planting Lilies in the Garden

  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Oriental Lilies prefer an Acidic/Ericaceous Soil type. They do not tolerate Lime very well.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Plant the bulbs about 12-20cm (5-8") apart. Space the groupings at least 60-90cm (2-3ft) apart.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Planting Lilies in Pots

  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost. 
  • John Innes No. 3 is ideal for lilies.

How to care for Oriental Lilies

  • 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 your Oriental 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 or you can make up your own with the Concentrate. 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.

This question was asked by
- Amanda S

Im looking for a reliable and stunning flower to grow in pots to decorate my daughters wedding venue. The wedding is in Hertfordshire on 22/08/20. I am wondering if Amistad double oriental lily is suitable. If so please advise if you can supply 100-150 and how I can best work to the correct flowering period.

Hi Amanda
That's no problem at all.... Amistad is expected to be in flower in August so the timing should be ideal. we would recommend planting them February/March time. If you would you like to discuss it further, you could contact Jonathan on 07855785540 and he should be able to assist.

Amistad (harts105311)

Kind regards
