This question was asked by

I have just received an email saying this is now in stock however when I click on the link it says Zantedeschia ‘Cantor’ (Pack of 3 Bulbs) is still out of stock.

Hi Stephen

Sorry about that, the Zantesdeschia are now available to purchase online for delivery in the spring when they need planting for a glorious display come the summer! Why not plant these alongside the deepest red calla lily Majestic Red for a really dramatic visual point in your garden!

Delivery of Nerines

This question was asked by
Nick

About to order a pack of 25 nerines but noticed delivery was not until February, these need to be in the ground this month ideally, am I mistaken?

Hi Nick

We dispatch Nerines in the spring when they need planting for late Summer/early Autumn flowering.

These are a great addition to your garden when most of your other summer flowers are starting to die off… then you have the burst of Nerines coming through to give you some extra colour in your garden as the autumn months draw in.

Josh – 

Hi there, I’ve just leased myself an allotment and my wife wants to grow Dow Jones tulips and oriental Stargazer Lilies. How and when do I plant? Thanks

Hi Josh
The tulips need planting after the first frosts this autumn and the lilies will need planting next spring for summer flowering.

Gloriosa aftercare

This question was asked by
Vivien H

How do I prepare my gloriosa for winter. They’ve been lovely, & are still green. Do I stop watering now or will they die back themselves?
Thanks,
Vivien

After your Gloriosa has finished flowering for the season, leave the foliage in place; don’t cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulb for the future.
Leaves and stalks may be removed when they yellow.
Gloriosa Lily Bulbs don’t like to get too cold, therefore if the temperature drops to -7 degrees, you’ll need to lift Gloriosa lily bulbs and store them indoors in ever so slightly damp peat moss. Or you can just replace them next spring for another year of winged blooms.
Your Gloriosa lilies will rest for a few months before beginning the next growing cycle in the spring/summer.
Don’t water while the tuber is dormant.

Yes, there will be a delivery charge for the lilies but if you order your Iris this weekend then you will get free delivery for those with code FREESHIP.

The Iris we had at the Harrogate flower show were Blue Hill and Purple Hill.

When to lift and move lilies

This question was asked by
Geoffrey G

When is the best time to move lily bulbs Speaking to your staff at Newby Hall flower show I was told that the white lily oricle is better than casa blanca. have you got any stock of it?

I would let your lilies die back completely and then lift and move them. This will most likely be the end of Autumn.
