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.

I bought some lilies at the Chatsworth show ( Cali) and planted them in pots as you advised. They are so beautiful, everyone who sees them compliments on them. They are about 1.5 m tall and I took them indoors as the wind might damage them. I will definitely order some more for next year.Shame I can't attach a picture of them. Claire Hutton.

Hi Claire

- I. Greaves

Hello I recently received an order of bulbs. 3 different ones. ( Thalita, Cali and Tissento). To be honest, I couldn't remember what they all actually look like ( I ordered them at Wisley Show in September). I have been on your web site but have not been able to find an image of the Tissento. I found the other 2 ok. Can you please send me a picture of the Tissento. Thanks very much! I hope you're all keeping well. Kind regards Irena

Hi Irena
Sorry about that, we often have smaller quantities for special show varieties and therefore we can't sell them on our website. I will locate an image for you and send it over on email.

Stay well well and keep gardening.
