Planting and growing instructions: Pumilum Species Lily from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Asiatic Lily Bulbs should be planted as soon as possible. Ideally in the Spring.
  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • It is best to check the type of soil you have as different lily varieties like different soils.
  • Asiatics mainly like Alkaline soils.
  • 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" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Plant care: Pumilum Species 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.

Lily Pyreneum

This question was asked by
Margaret Johnson

I have a small yellow Turks cap type lily with a delicate scent that has been growing in my garden since I moved here. I’ve finally identified it as lily pyreneum and have seen it growing wild in several places in the Lake District. I would like to purchase bulbs or if not seed to increase my now one solitary plant. Do you have any stock or if not could you let me know where I could obtain some. My searches on the internet have not been successful , yours hopefully Margaret Johnson
