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.

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.

Good morning, I recently ordered some Lily Kenrda and Cameleon which you have kindly delivered, thank you. I have been trying to purchase some ericaceous compost since I placed my order with you but to no avail. Will they still grow in good quality multi-purpose compost? Kind regards, Linda

You're welcome - yes your lilies will be absolutely fine in a good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
