Help to choose right lily for wedding

This question was asked by
S. Stuart

Please can you recommend a white or partly pink lily I can grow in pots to cut for a wedding in mid July? Most of the lilies I have seen don’t flower until late July onwards.

Good Evening,
I would probably advise planting some Asiatic Lilies as they are the earliest flowering lilies. However, it can be quite difficult to time their growth as they can be weather dependent. If it was me, and I wanted something in bloom for a particular date, I would probably plant a few different varieties to guarantee something will be in flower.

Have you looked at Lilium Bentley. This is a really stunning Longiflorum Asiatic double lily. In theory this should be in flower towards the end of June/Beginning of July:
Bentley (SKU17767)

You could also try the Asiatic Lily Elodie:
Elodie (harts1043)

Hope this helps.

Lily Bulbs

This question was asked by
L. Farrell

Hi

I plant most of my lilies in container pots. I usually leave them in the containers over winter.
Is this correct or should I remove the Lily bulb and put it in a cardboard box? or what is the correct way to look after them?
Many thanks for your assistance, kind regards LIz

Hi Liz

The lily bulbs are happy to stay in their pots in soil and outside (as they like a cold dormant phase), however they must be in a well-drained container and ensure the bulbs do not get waterlogged as they rot.

N. Johnston

I wanted to buy some bulbs but when I put in my address it won’t let me put in Australia, does his mean I can not buy them from you?

I’m afraid we do not ship to Australia. Sorry about that.

Flowering time

This question was asked by
Amanda S

I’m looking for a reliable and stunning flower to grow in pots to decorate my daughter’s wedding venue. The wedding is in Hertfordshire on 22/08/20. I am wondering if Amistad double oriental lily is suitable. If so please advise if you can supply 100-150 and how I can best work to the correct flowering period.

Hi Amanda
That’s no problem at all…. Amistad is expected to be in flower in August so the timing should be ideal. we would recommend planting them February/March time. If you would you like to discuss it further, you could contact Jonathan on 07855785540 and he should be able to assist.
