I know it is the wrong time of year to buy and plant lillies. I aslo note you are (logically) out of stock. When will you have new stock? And naturally as i live in Germany would you ship to me? I know the extra costs.

Hi there,
Yes we currently ship to Germany. All lilies will be back in stock to pre-order from August.

hi there, i have four pots of manissa lilies have you any sugestions of shorter lilies that i could put in front of manissa that would flower at the same time . many thanks Denise

Hi Denise
I would probably look at planting orientals with the OT lilies as these will flower at a similar time.

Flame Lilies

This question was asked by
Mike Lofty

Hello. I was recently given some bulbs. Should I plant them now or wait? Either way how should I care for them in the meantime?

Thanks and regards

HI there,
Plant your Gloriosa rhizomes as soon as possible. I would advise starting them off indoors whilst we are experiencing some cooler temperatures. Be careful not to knock the tip as they are quite sensitive to knocks.

You can find further planting instructions on the bottom of this page:

what is the best feed for lilys, iv bn giving them a liquid seaweed feed is this ok

Hi there,
If you want to feed your lilies then a slow release fertilizer is good. Also a general tomato feed has shown to be beneficial for lily growth, use 1/2 the dilution recommended on the bottle. Or use the Lily Beetle Prevention Spray which has great results for strengthening and stimulating lily growth too.
