I am looking for tree lillies that have a long flowering period and are reasonably tall in height. What varieties would you recommend?
All the tree lilies will flower about the same length of time. I would recommend the Conca D’or Lily for a good strong, all-round lily. However, our Tree Lily collection is very good value for money and contains 4 different varieties:
I want to plant up an old metal coal scuttle measuring 16in x 12in x 10 in deep with white lilies. Can you please advise how many bulbs I would need and the best variety to choose? I am thinking along the lines of keeping to white but am open to the possibility of introducing perhaps pink. I like My Wedding and Leona but would welcome your comments. A lighter fragrance would be my first preference
I would recommend having maybe 6 lilies within this space. My Wedding and Leona are both stunning varieties and will produce a lovely scent for you. If you are after a slight hint of colour, perhaps mix them with Roselily Kendra as this has a subtle pink edging to it which is simply stunning!
I am interested in purchasing one of your lily tree collections. I want to plant these in pots and I note you suggest 3 to a 10″ pot. Can you put 4 into a 16″ pot? Also, if I was to order these now, I realise they wouldn’t come until Feb. so wondering if, paying by card, you would deduct this from my card straight away or leave it until a bit nearer to delivery. Many thanks
So sorry for the delay in replying. I must have missed this question. Yes 4 bulbs to a 16″ pot is absolutely fine. Payment is taken upon order.
I have just ordered one Isabella lily bulb to see how I like it. Years ago, after receiving a bouquet from my son with pink lilies in it, I got the name Le Reve from the flower shop and bought some from a nursery. They were magnificent, but I have tried and been unable to get them since. Do you know this variety and where I could get it? Thank you.
As far as I am aware Lilium Le Reve is out of production. However we do have one called Companion which is just as beautiful. Or Lilium Myth which is a pale pink with a yellow centre.
Dear Harts Nursery
I have previously bought Kathinka roselilies from you. I see you are out of stock at present, but I wonder if I could order some more and collect them from you at the Malvern Flower Show (as I did previously)?
Unfortunately, Kathinka is not available at the moment. However, have you looked at My Wedding, Monica or Pamela, these are both stunning White Double Oriental Lilies. We also have many others doubles available here: https://www.hartsnursery.co.uk/Roselily-Series/
We are considering buying 3 types of lilly bulbs x say 3 of each. Is the postage combined & if so what.
Mike & Jill
Yes, your postage is combined to £4.95 (within the UK) per order. Have you looked at our collections as well? These have 4 types of lilies with 3 of each bulb in – all labelled and bagged per variety. I have attached some of our lily bulb collections for your perusal.
