Each flower head is about 5cm in diameter and once established they will grow to about 160cm (1.6m) and produce up to 40 heads from each bulb.

How to plant Martagon Lilies

  • These Lily Bulbs should be planted as soon as possible.

  • Martagon Lilies like a any soil from Acidic to Alkaline, chalky, sand or loam based.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.

Planting Martagon lilies in the garden

  • If planting in the garden, Martagons prefer a humus-rich, you can add horticultural grit to your soil to improve drainage.
  • Plant in groups for the best display (e.g 3 bulbs to a group), plant the bulbs about 12-20cm (5-8") apart.
  • Space the groupings at least 60-90cm (2-3ft) apart.
  • Plant the bulbs with 10-15cm (4-6") of soil above them.
  • Plant with pointy end up and roots down.
  • Martagon lilies will flower early Summer.

Planting Martagon lilies in pots

  • If planting in pots, plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
  • Martagon lilies do well in John Innes No.3 compost.
  • Plant the bulbs with 10-15cm (4-6") of soil above them.
  • Plant with pointy end up and roots down.
  • Ensure there is adequate drainage holes.

Care Instructions

How to care for Martagon 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 days full sunshine, if its 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.
  • Lilies like a cold dormant phase and are happy to stay outside throughout the winter, just ensure they don't get waterlogged as this will cause the to rot.
  • After a few years of flowering, you may find the Lilium Henryi 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 making up your own and using 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.
