Ginger Lilly

This question was asked by
Michael Goode

How do I plant my ginger Lilly in a container Please.?

If planting in pots: Hedychium gardnerianum rhizomes grow naturally above ground. Plant your rhizomes/tubers so that the rhizome is horizontal (on its side) with any visible shoots pointing upwards and is only half covered with soil. Use a large pot, layering pot with shards or clay pellets on the bottom for drainage and weight. Add fresh potting compost and place the roots of the rhizome in the soil – if there are no roots visible the rhizome will soon begin to form them. Water immediately after planting.

Eremurus

I have a south facing hot dry slope in my Devon garden. Would Eremurus grow well on this site? When is the best time to plant these.

Yes this would be perfect for Eremurus. These need planting in the Autumn but you can pre-order them now.

White grubs on lilies

This question was asked by
J. Normansell

I have noticed some white very tiny grubs on the growing lilies, please can you advise what they could be and how to get rid of them. Thank you

Do they look like white fly? If so, dilute some washing up liquid and spray them.
