Planting and growing instructions: Pink Heaven Longiflorum Lily from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

• Longiflorum 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.
• Longiflorum Oriental Lilies can tolerate most soil types, Acidic or Alkaline.
• Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
• If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs about 5-8" apart. Space the groupings at least 3 feet apart.
• If planting in pots, plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'type pot' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
• Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Plant care: Pink Heaven Longiflorum 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 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.

Pink Heaven Lily

This question was asked by
T. Thomas

I bought some sumptuous lillies a few years ago, to go in pots. Pink Heaven. I top the soil up every year, however this year the leaves have turned a brown colour. More than normal. Should i pull the bulbs out completely and repot for next year. ( i think i will anway) I have cut the flowers which are now flowering beautifully , for a vase. This is my favourite lilly and love it from your nursery – but want the best results. XXX

Good evening,

Pink Heaven is a stunning variety. We do advise lifting your lily bulbs after 3 to 4 years and dividing them and replanting. You could also try feeding your lilies with a tomato feed at a 1/4 of the usual strength.

As you say you have cut your lily flowers for indoor use, they may not flower brilliantly the following year as the bulbs need the foliage to die back naturally to re-energise for the following year’s flower. It may take a couple of years for your lilies to gain momentum again.
