How to plant Oriental Trumpet Lilies

  • 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 as long as it's well drained.

Planting Oriental Trumpet Lilies in the Garden

  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Plant the bulbs about 20" apart. Space the groupings at least 90cm (3ft) apart.

  • Ensure the bulbs have plenty of drainage.

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
- Gillian P

I plan to buy the above variety & would also like a later flowering one if such a variety exists. Do you stock any? Would also need to be lime-tolerant Advice appreciated Gillian

Hi Gillian
All the tree lilies and hybrid lilies are happy in any well-drained soil. The roselilies are the later flowering lilies but prefer an acidic soil. The Asiatic lilies are lime tolerant but usually flower June/July time. When would you like them to be in flower? If you opt for a later delivery and plant them later in spring, then they will flower a bit later than normal. They usually take 8-12 weeks to flower after planting.
