Planting and growing instructions: Salmon Star Dwarf Oriental from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Pot 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.
  • Pot Lilies (or Dwarf Lilies) can tolerate most soil types, Acidic or Alkaline.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Ideally, these Dwarf sized lilies should be planted in pots, plant 3 bulbs in a 10" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Plant care: Salmon Star Dwarf Oriental from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Lilies can tolerate very cold conditions but they do not like to get wet.
  • When 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.
  • When 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 that 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.
  • See FAQ on Lily Beetle care.
