How to plant Asiatic Lilies

  • Lily Bulbs should be planted as soon as possible. Ideally in the Spring.
  • It is best to check the type of soil you have as different lily varieties like different soil. Asiatic lilies mainly like Alkaline soils. The AOA lilies are happy in any soil type. 

Planting Asiatic Lilies in the Garden

  • If planting in the garden, Asiatic lilies prefer a well-drained Alkaline soil. If you are unsure of your soil type, it's best to plant your lilies in pots/containers.
  • AOA lilies are happy in either Acidic or Alkaline soil. 
  • 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 10-15cm (4-6") of soil above them.

Planting Asiatic Lilies in Pots

  • If planting in pots, find a location with full sun or partial shade. 
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using a good-quality, multi-purpose compost
  • John Innes No. 3 is ideal for lilies.
  • Plant the bulbs with 10-15cm (4-6") of soil above them.
  • Ensure there is adequate drainage.

Plant care: Eremo Asiatic Lily from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • 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.
  • After a few years of flowering, you may find the Oriental 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.

What do I do to get the flowers on my lilies as big the following years.

This question was asked by
- P. Williamson

I have Isobella from last year but the flowers are half the size. I feed with tomato feed. This year I have Lorena, Eremo and a few more, I would like to have big flowers next year like this year. What do I do? Your lilies are so beautiful. I have more on order for next year. Thanks, Kind regards, Pat

Hi there,

You need to ensure your lily bulbs are planted in the correct soil for each variety. So Lorena and Isabella like an ericaceous soil as they are Oriental Lilies and Eremo will prefer an Alkaline soil as they are an Asiatic Lily. I would advise mixing in some John Innes No.3 with a good multi-purpose compost for best results. Also, when feeding with a tomato feed, are you using 1/4 strength?
