Keep Lily Beetle at bay with this Wildlife-friendly, Eco-friendly, Child and Pet-friendly, all-natural lily Beetle prevention solution 'Grazers'. Grazers will also strengthen and stimulate the plant growth.  

Scarlet Lily Beetle (LILIOCERIS LILII) 

This scarlet coloured pest can feed on lily and fritillaria foliage in spring to early summer. Bulbs can become under-sized and flowering the following year can be jeopardised. These pests can be seen in their various stages of growth and are all equally dangerous. Reddish brown eggs lead onto grubs and then finally to bright red beetles with black head and legs.

How to use:
Spray every 7-10 days upon first sighting (from March onwards).

Plant care: Buy Lily Beetle Repellent | Award 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 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 the Oriental Trumpets 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. 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.

Lily Beetles on Fritillaria

This question was asked by
B. Cormack

Would it not be a good idea to remind people to look out for the damned Lily Beetles on Fritillaries. My fritillaria meleagris have been attacked by the beetle for the last two years, and I now keep a close eye on them as soon as the leaves appear.

Hello there,
Thanks for your feedback. I do mention about the Lily Beetle on Fritillarias on the ‘Care & Planting Guide’ on our website but maybe I should add it to the individual product pages also. Thanks for the tip! Have you tried our Lily Beetle Prevention Spray for your Fritillaria?

What can I feed my lilies with?

This question was asked by
E. Taylor

Can you feed lilies with anything to stimulate growth? What do you suggest feeding your lilies with for best results?

We recommend feeding all lilies with a tomato feed as soon as you see signs of growth. We also recommend using the Lily Beetle Prevention spray that not only prevents the lily beetle from ruining your foliage but it can also encourage strong growth of your lilies.

This question was asked by

I’ve just placed an order for an assortment of lilies but am wondering if you can recommend something for the prevention of Lily Beetle infestation? I generally pick them off by hand when I see them but with my new order, this will be rather time consuming in the future! How do you control them?

Looking forward to hearing your sound advice!

Thanks,
Julie
