Planting and growing instructions: Roselily 'Aisha' | Lilies | Lily Bulbs | from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

How to plant Oriental Lilies

  • 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.
  • Oriental Lilies tend to grow exceptionally well in pots and tubs.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Planting Lilies in the Garden

  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Oriental Lilies prefer an Acidic/Ericaceous Soil type. They do not tolerate Lime very well.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • 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 4-6" of soil above them.

Planting Lilies in Pots

  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost. 
  • John Innes No. 3 is ideal for lilies.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.
  • Ensure there is adequate drainage. 
 
 

Plant care: Roselily 'Aisha' | Lilies | Lily Bulbs | 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.

Feeding Roselilies:

This question was asked by
- Roger Owen

Hello I have been growing your Roselilies for several years with much pleasure and great success!. They are in large containers which are overwintered in a frost-free greenhouse. Could you tell me the best way of feeding these container grown plants. Many thanks Roger

Your lilies are quite happy to have a cold dormant phase and can withstand -25 degree temperatures. Lily bulbs just don't like to get too wet.
You can feed your lilies with a tomato feed, I'd suggest using it at 1/4 strength so dilute some with water. Once you see signs of growth, you spray the tomato feed every other week.
Thanks for your email.

I am looking to buy rose lilly bulbs to be planted in pots:

This question was asked by
- Valerie Bridgeman

I do not want tree lillies. Can you recommend a small white rose lily suitable for a small garden.

Yes - all our white roselilies or double oriental lilies are stunning and shorter in height so they are ideal for pots or direct into your garden borders.

I have suggested a few gorgeous varieties below for you:

Scented lilies:

This question was asked by
- J. Saunders

How do I choose the lilies that are scented?

Any Oriental Lily has a fragrance, so look at Orientals, Oriental Trumpets Lilies (these are the tree-like lilies) and Roselilies. All these have wonderful perfumes. We find the whiter the lily the more fragrant it is.
