Why do you ship lilies in February?

I am interested in Lily bulb Black Beauty.
Why is the shipping not earlier than February?

Hi there,

Lilies need planting in the Spring for Summer flowering that is why we ship them throughout the months of Feb to May. The lily bulbs will be lifted in February ready for dispatch. Black Beauty is a stunning variety!
Hope this helps.

White highly scented lilies

This question was asked by

What is the best variety for white, highly scented lilies?

Hi there,
As a rule of thumb, the white oriental lily varieties have the strongest scent. If you would like a taller variety, then the Oriental Trumpet lilies (also known as Tree lilies) will produce large flower heads and can reach up to and/or over 6ft in height. I would suggest Zambesi for this variety. We also have shorter lily varieties, like the Roselilies or the Oriental lilies. These can reach up to 100-120cm in height depending on which you choose. We have plenty of white ones, including Lilium Bodyguard or Lilium Casa Blanca, which are gorgeous Oriental lilies. The Roselilies are without stamen but still produce a gorgeous perfume, I would recommend Roselily Aisha or Roselily Kathinka. Hope this helps.
