When to move Martgon lilies.

This question was asked by
M. Galen Carter

We bought some gorgeous Martagon lilies from you in 2016 ? They have done splendidly but now we would like to move some of them. Can we do this now or should we wait until spring ? We live in Devon, but 800 ft up, but do not get very heavy frosts.
Advice would be much appreciated.

Your Martagon Lilies are fine to be moved this Autumn providing everything has died down.

Lily flowering time

What lilies are the latest flowering, fragrant ones that you can recommend for planting in pots, please?

Hi there,
The Roselilies lilies are the latest flowering lilies (usually into August) and will produce a gorgeous scent. However, you can plant your lilies later in the year and they tend to flower 8-12 weeks after that if they have been held back in coldstore.

Why are lilies dispatched in the Spring?

Hi, everything I want is in stock or available to order but delivery not until Feb/march so I am confused, CB

Yes – you can order it now for delivery in Feb/March next year as that’s when the crop is available to lift and dispatch. All lilies need planting in the Spring for Summer flowering.

Do you do a catalogue of all your garden bulbs that you can send?

We have stopped producing a catalogue of our lilies and other bulbous plants as we are considering the environment. We have all our varieties online, or he can download our online catalogue.
