This question was asked by
C. Guest

I am wanting to purchase some ‘Golden Splendour’ large trumpet lily bulbs.
Please may I ask you if these bulbs will flower this year? I am a bit concerned that I may be too late for this year.

Yes all lilies planted now will flower this year. Golden Splendour lily bulbs will need to be planted as soon as you receive them and they will flowers towards the end of June, beginning of July.

Multicoloured Tree-like’ Lily Bulb Collection

This question was asked by
A. Nuttall

Multicoloured ‘Tree-like’ Lily Bulb Collection – Do the bulbs on these lilies stay in the ground over winter or do they need lifting?

Yes lilies actually like a cold-dormant phase and need to be left where they over winter. If you are planting your lilies in a pot, just ensure there’s plenty of drainage as Lilies don’t like to get water logged, you can even tip your pot on its side.

Pesticides for lilies

This question was asked by
Maureen

I have bought some dynamix lillies from you. Last year my lillies were all diseased as they flowered. Any suggestions or pesticides I can use which is bird and animal friendly. Thanks.

Are you sure the lilies were diseased or do you think it could have been Lily Beetle? We recommend using a Neem Oil Spray you can make yourself. Using a hand spraye, add 1 teaspoon of Neem Oil (5ml) plus a small amount of washing up liquid (as a surfactant) with approx. 500ml water. So 1 part Neem Oil to 100 parts water (1:100).

Lilies as cut flowers

This question was asked by
A. Hills

I always buy lilies to grow in pots to display round the garden. When I get too many I plant them out on my allotment. I can then use them as cut flowers , but will this deteriate the bulbs as they will not die back naturally?

Hi Anthony

This is a good question. If you do cut your lilies for indoor flowers or even remove foliage before it has completely died back naturally it will cause small or limited flower quantities the next season.

Lily bulbs get their energy for the next growing season from the leaves. If you cut them back prematurely, next year’s growth and flowers might be diminished.
