Planting and growing instructions: Roselily 'Isabella' | Double Oriental Lilies | Lily Bulbs | Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Roselily 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. Roselilies mainly like Acidic/Ericaceous 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 an Ericaceous Soil. Although any good multi-purpose compost is suitable, John Innes No.3 is recommended for Roselilies as it is easier to manage with watering and feeding. 
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Plant care: Roselily 'Isabella' | Double Oriental Lilies | Lily Bulbs | 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.

What do I do to get the flowers on my lilies as big the following years.

This question was asked by
- P. Williamson

I have Isobella from last year but the flowers are half the size. I feed with tomato feed. This year I have Lorena, Eremo and a few more, I would like to have big flowers next year like this year. What do I do? Your lilies are so beautiful. I have more on order for next year. Thanks, Kind regards, Pat

Hi there,

You need to ensure your lily bulbs are planted in the correct soil for each variety. So Lorena and Isabella like an ericaceous soil as they are Oriental Lilies and Eremo will prefer an Alkaline soil as they are an Asiatic Lily. I would advise mixing in some John Innes No.3 with a good multi-purpose compost for best results. Also, when feeding with a tomato feed, are you using 1/4 strength?

Will lily bulbs grow on a north facing balcony?

This question was asked by
- Mrs D Leadley

Will lily bulbs grow on a north facing balcony? I am interrested in the Roselilies.

As long as they get some Sunshine through out the day - at least a few hours and they are planted in a well-drained soil, then they will be absolutely fine.

Roselilies are a gorgeous variety. They have no stamen but they still have a lovely fragrance.

Lovely to see you at Chelsea 2019! Bought Isabella rose Lily x5. Question is can I plant all 5 in a 10-14 inch pot please? The pot doesn't taper so is quite 'roomy'. Look forward to shopping with you in the future.

Yes - that that's absolutely fine to plant your 5 x Roselily Isabella lilies in a 10-14inch. The more space the better.
