Lily Pyreneum

This question was asked by
Margaret Johnson

I have a small yellow Turks cap type lily with a delicate scent that has been growing in my garden since I moved here. I’ve finally identified it as lily pyreneum and have seen it growing wild in several places in the Lake District. I would like to purchase bulbs or if not seed to increase my now one solitary plant. Do you have any stock or if not could you let me know where I could obtain some. My searches on the internet have not been successful , yours hopefully Margaret Johnson

Hello there,
That’s new one on me. Do you mean Lilium Pumilum?

TREE LILLES

This question was asked by
T. LETHERBY

I am looking for tree lillies that have a long flowering period and are reasonably tall in height. What varieties would you recommend?

Good afternoon,

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:

Nymph (harts1027)

Robina (harts1029)

Manissa (harts1025)

Cocossa (SKU17672)

How many bulbs?

This question was asked by
Anne Watson

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

With thanks

Good afternoon,

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!

Miss Lucy lily

This question was asked by
Coleen

I am trying to find miss Lucy lilies or even a rose Lucy. I see you had the lilies but currently you do not, will you be restocking them at all?
Thank you

Unfortunately, Miss Lucy Lily bulbs have been discontinued by the grower. Have you tried Soft Music or Kendra. These are both white double oriental lilies with a touch of pink.

Planting of tree lilies

This question was asked by
C. Robinson

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

Hello there,
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.

Kind regards

Query on lily variety

This question was asked by
J. Wheeler

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.

Hi there,
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.

Companion (SKU17685)

Myth (SKU17847)

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)?
Kind regards
