Calla Lilies

This question was asked by

Hi, are Picasso and Zantedeschia hardy or do they require lifting for winter/ Thanks M.S.

Hi Mr Salter

Zantedeschia are not hardy and will require protecting over winter.

We advise lifting Rhizomes before the first frosts and store them over winter before replanting them in the Spring (after the risk of frost has passed).

Store Rhizomes in trays of compost in a cool, dark, frost-free location, e.g a garage, shed, warm greenhouse or conservatory.

Are there any lilies that are more resistant to the beetle?

This question was asked by

Are there any lilies that are more resistant to the beetle?

I would like to grow lilies this year , mainly in containers with a few in the borders.

Thankyou.

Hi Michele

Unfortunately i can’t say any lilies are less susceptible to Lily Beetle however there are a few solutions you can do to eliminate them as much as possible:

Inspect plants regularly, pick off any adults, grubs and eggs and destroy as you see fit. Otherwise spray with Imidcloprid and sunflower oil (or Bayer Provado Ultimate Bug Killer). If you do not like using insecticides then spraying with diluted fairy liquid or crushed garlic in water have been suggested by some of our customers. Crush a whole corm of garlic in a small pan of boiling water. Allow to cool, strain and put in a small container in the fridge. When using, dilute three parts water to one part garlic solution. Spray often, every few days, especially when it has rained. There is a garlic product available in garden centres and stores, but this is a much cheaper alternative.

We also recommend using a NEEM oil this is something we will have available to purchase on our website this year.

Delivery to Buckinghamshire

This question was asked by
Dori

Hi, I would like to order some bulbs, but the delivery charge seem to be too expensive 12.95, i live in Buckinghamshire, is there another option. Thank you

Hello there
Oh dear that does sound rather expensive doesn’t it? It should only be £4.95 for you to Buckinghamshire. Have you checked the Country is set as the UK?
If this problem persists, feel free to call us on 07855785540 and we can take your order over the phone.
