Planting Roselily plants

This question was asked by
Terry E

I will be ordering plants from your web site, before I can would you advise me the maximum number Roselily plants I can plant in a 60cm Dia planter.

Is it OK to plant these Lillies in groups of 3 0r 5 ? in the planter.

Would you advise if it is suitable to fill the planter using Ericaceous soil mixed with John Innes No3 soil?

Is it best to plant the bulbs at the bottom of the planter and then cover to the top with the soil?

Many thanks – Terry

Hi Terry

You need to plant your bulbs with 4-6″ of soil above the top of the bulbs mixing the Ericaceous with John Innes No.3 is perfect. You could plant 9 (3×3) to 10 (5×2) roselily bulbs in this size pot.

This question was asked by

I recently ordered some lilies but discovered Lily ‘Spectator’ was out of stock. Will you get more in ready for the Spring planting season?

Unfortunately we haven’t got Lilium Spectator available this year. Have you looked at Solution which is a similar oriental lily.

Lilies for planting in autumn

This question was asked by

Please could you tell me if I can still plant Lilium Candidum in beds or pots now. If the answer is no how should I store the bulbs until it is safe to plant them. I live in Kent and we have had a couple of frosts but are mainly putting up with rain. My soil is a lovely loam with good drainage. Thank you.

Hi Trisha

Yes, you need to plant your Lilium Candidum now. As long as you have good drainage you can plant them in your borders. Pots are great for Lilium Candidum too.

This question was asked by
Linda S –

I planted Bentley lilies 3 in a pot earlier in the year and they flowered beautifully. What I don’t know is how to treat them this winter. Do I leave them in their pot(quite big to bring into my small greenhouse) or leave in a sheltered spot outside….or lift them? Advice please.
