Planting and growing instructions: Stargazer Oriental Lily from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • 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 prefer an Acidic/Ericaceous Soil type. They do not tolerate Lime very well.
  • 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.
  • Oriental Lilies tend to grow exceptionally well in pots and tubs.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Plant care: Stargazer Oriental 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 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.
  • See FAQ on Lily Beetle care.

Do lilies need a feed?

This question was asked by
P. Armstrong

I have some lilies and feel that those lilies in pots must now be in desperate need of a feed after being there for a few years. As every feed under the sun has different components, could you tell me which in particular I should be looking for to feed my lilies? I would like to buy an organic feed if possible – any advice?

We use a good quality Tomato feed for our lilies once every other week. Also, after 3-4 years, your lilies will need dividing and replanting. Just lift the plants and divide the clumps, you will see baby bulblets attached to the original bulb, break these off and replant all the bulbs and bulblets. Add extra compost where necessary.
