Lily Bulb collections

This question was asked by
Katie Wright

Hi,

I was wondering, if I buy a tree lily bulb collection, will the bulbs be identified/separated? Sorry if this sounds like a daft question but I just wanted to make sure!

Thanks,
Katie

No it’s not a daft question at all… the tree lily collection is separated and individually labelled. But some of the mixed packs (like the Dazzling whites for example are not) as they are just a mix of white lilies and combined at a discounted price.

Planting out my lilies

This question was asked by
L. Hunt

Trust you are all safe and well. Due to the very wet autumn and winter, our new garden is still not ready for planting. I have started both my Lilies and Dahlias in pots. Will I be able to transplant into my new garden in May or will I have to grow them on in pots for this season?
Kind Regards
Lesley

Good morning,
Yes we are all well thank you. Hope you are too. If you have already planted your dahlias and lilies in pots, then I would advise keeping them in pots for the rest of their flowering season. You can then move them and replant them in your garden once everything has died back ,This is usually the end of Autumn.

Tree Lillies

This question was asked by
Harry Devey

Hi Why do some Tree Lillies require Ericacious Soil? They dont seem as forward growing as the others.

Regards, Harry Devey

Tree lilies are actually happy in any well-drained soil. It’s oriental lilies that prefer an acidic soil.

Pollen free lilies

This question was asked by
Jessica Prebble

Hi. Happy easter.
Are the pollen free lilies safe for cats?
Thanks
Jessica

They are safe for Cats as long as they don’t try to eat the lily. But that is the same for a lot of garden plants. Usually what happens is a cat will brush past the stamen of a lily and then they lick it off their fur and that’s what is poisonous to them.

Hope that helps.
