How to plant Oriental Trumpet Lilies

  • Oriental Trumpet Hybrid 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 Trumpet Hybrid Lilies can tolerate most soil types, Acidic or Alkaline as long as it's well drained.

Planting Oriental Trumpet Lilies in the Garden

  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Plant the bulbs about 20" apart. Space the groupings at least 90cm (3ft) apart.
  • Plant the bulbs with 10-15cm (4-6") of soil above them.
  • Ensure the bulbs have plenty of drainage. 

Planting Oriental Trumpet Lilies in Pots

  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
  • We recommend using John Innes No.3 for lilies.
  • Plant the bulbs with 10-15cm (4-6") of soil above them.
  • Ensure the bulbs have plenty of drainage.

Plant care: Multicoloured Tree-like Lily Bulb Collection (Pack of 12 Bulbs) from the 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 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.

This question was asked by
- A. Nuttall

Multicoloured 'Tree-like' Lily Bulb Collection - Do the bulbs on these lilies stay in the ground over winter or do they need lifting?

Yes lilies actually like a cold-dormant phase and need to be left where they over winter. If you are planting your lilies in a pot, just ensure there's plenty of drainage as Lilies don't like to get water logged, you can even tip your pot on its side.

Hi Mark
All our tree lilies are fantastic. Usually you find the whiter the flower, the stronger the scent but Tree lilies are all highly scented . Have you seen our Tree lily collections which are a good offer at a slightly reduced price?

How do I plant my lilies? And care for lilies?:

This question was asked by
- A. Marriott

Hi there, just placed an order, hoping its a good mix, will be planting in containers, what is the best compost, does it require crocks for drainage,when should i plant, how deep, do i protect from frost, any information would be great, its a surprise for my wife, there her favourite flowers, so want to get it right, how long is delivery, many thanks

HI there,

You will receive Planting Instructions with your order so that should cover everything on there but here is an overview for you:

Planting Instructions
Lily Bulbs should be planted as soon as you receive them. Ideally in the Spring.
Find a location with full sun or partial shade.
Different Lily varieties tolerate different soil types, Acidic or Alkaline. Most of your lilies are Oriental Trumpet Lilies which can tolerate both. The Lipgloss Oriental Lily you've ordered will like Acidic (ericaceaous) soil. Although any good multipurpose compost is suitable, John Innes No 3 is recommended for most lilies. You can also add horticultural grit if the soil appears to dense.
Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
As you are planting in pots and the varieties you have chosen are also known as Tree-lilies, we would recommend planting them in heavy patio pots to hold the weight of these tall lilies. Plant 3 bulbs in a 14-16" 'patio type' pot.
Plant the bulbs pointy end up with 6" of soil above them. You can add crocks to the bottom of the container if you wish, these will help with drainage and weighing the pot down.
Lilies can tolerate very cold conditions but they do not like to get wet.
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 even during the winter (It may be an idea to tilt the pots on their side in the winter to prevent waterlog). Lilies are happy to stay outside during the winter as they like a cold dormant phase so no need to worry about frost.
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.
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 your lilies produce 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.
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.

Hope this all helps.
Kind regards

Watering Lilies:

This question was asked by
- Francis Machin

Do lilies need a lot of watering?

Believe it or not lilies can take quite a bit of drought. They really like to be well drained. Unless it's very hot, then they only need watering once a week. If you are new to growing lilies, we would suggest trying the Oriental Trumpet Lilies to get you going as these are happy in any well-drained soil. Once you've started growing lilies, you'll see how easy they are and you'll be addicted I'm sure.

Which lilies are easy to grow?:

This question was asked by
- S. Henry

I once saw an expert on tv discussing lilies asiatic and oriental. He said one of these was easy to grow, the other not so. Trouble is, I cant remember which he said was easy! Can you please help? Thank you so much.

All lilies are fairly easy to grow as long as they are in well-drained soil. Different varieties of lilies do like different types of soil (Alkaline or Acidic). If you are unsure of your soil type in the garden, then growing them in pots will be perfect with a good multi-purpose soil and adequate drainage. But if you want to plant them in the garden borders,then go for Oriental Trumpet lilies are they are happy in any soil type.

So to answer your question, they are all easy to maintain and will come back year after year.

Maintenance of Tree lilies:

This question was asked by
- Alan Liddell

How much maintenance do the tree lilies require ?

Tree lilies need very little maintenance, as long as they are in a well-drained area or pot and in a nice sunny location you will find they need very little maintenance. Lilies also like to be left out in the winter to have a cold dormant stage so no need to be lifted.

strengthening lilies in pots:

This question was asked by
- Mandy Wieczorek

I have just signed up to your website and will definitely be ordering Lily bulbs for next year. My question is, for the past couple of years I have had a fantastic show with my giant tree lilies,which are in pots but, this year they are about half the size with very few flowers. Any advice will be gratefully received.They are about 3 years old. My other lilies have not done well either.

Hi there

We advise replanting your lilies after 3 years, give them some fresh compost and break off the baby bulblets as these will be sapping the energy from the main bulbs. You could also give them a feed with some diluted tomarite or a slow release fertiliser:
