Eremurus

This question was asked by
Christine

I have a south facing hot dry slope in my Devon garden. Would Eremurus grow well on this site? When is the best time to plant these.

Yes this would be perfect for Eremurus. These need planting in the Autumn but you can pre-order them now.

White grubs on lilies

This question was asked by
J. Normansell

I have noticed some white very tiny grubs on the growing lilies, please can you advise what they could be and how to get rid of them. Thank you

Do they look like white fly? If so, dilute some washing up liquid and spray them.

Fritillaria

This question was asked by
Louis Henry

After the stems have gone brown and died down do you lift the bulbs or just water the compost. They are in a pot?

When the Fritiallaria Imperialis has finished flowering, cut any seed heads back and allow the foliage to die back naturally. Once it has died back completely, you can remove the stem and foliage. Leave them where they are but ensure adequate drainage. Fritillaria Imperialis 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, sandy.
If planting in pots, make sure the Fritiallaria Imperialis are kept moist but do not get waterlogged.
If planting in pots, it may be an idea to tilt the pots on their side in the winter to prevent waterlog.

Do you have a spray for the tiny flies that seem to be on the soil

I would advise diluting some washing up liquid and spraying them with this.
