Planting Flame lilies

This question was asked by
L. Barrowman

I have purchased 2 x 3 flame lilies from your website. Do I plant all three in one pot or one per pot? How deep should I plant the tubular?
Thank you

We advise planting the Rhizomes 3-4″ deep and 6-8″ apart. So it will depend on the size of your pot. If you wish to plant all 3 bulbs in one pot, I would suggest using an 18″ pot. If you look on our website, we advise planting the rhizomes on a 45 degree angle. A diagram can be found to show which way up to plant on the angle. I do hope that helps.
Kind regards

Hello, I am trying to locate a Fire Lily plant or bulb for my mother, I am struggling to find one online and wondered if you stocked them?

Yes we do stock the Fire Lily, it’s also called Gloriosa The Flame Lily. These are sent out next month and will flower in the summer. See link below.

Which way to plant a Gloriosa Bulb

This question was asked by
W. Arnold

How can I tell which way to plant a Gloriosa bulb? I can’t tell which is the growth tip and tail end?

Great question and this is one that baffles a few people. Below I have attached a diagram to show which way to plant a Gloriosa Rhizome/Bulb. It’s also best to plant the Gloriosa Rhizomes on a 45 degree angle as well.
