Calla Lily bulbs

Derek M – 

I have purchased a few calla Lilly bulbs from you. My question is when is the best time to plant in outside containers. When is early spring, end of March or end of April. For flowering in the summer

Hi Derek

Now (March) is the perfect time to plant Calla Lilies… any time between now and May. They need planting in pots and kept indoors in a sunny position until the risk of frost has passed. You can then transplant your callas to your garden or just move the pots to your patio or borders.

If you want to plant them straight outside, then I would wait until May when the weather has warmed up.

Your calla lilies will then flower later into the summer months and will need bringing back indoors before the first frosts hit.
