We are hoping this year will be as exceptional as 2019 was for us. We received Gold Medals at every show in the floral marquee… that’s a total of 10 shiny Gold Medalsfor 2019! We also achieved 5 Star awards for all of our 8 Plant Village Exhibits including the Best Exhibit at the RHS Cardiff Flower Show. At the beginning of 2019, we were awarded the ‘Lawrence Trophy’ and the ‘Mrs. T E Rivis Prize’ for our cut flower display at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 2018. And to add the icing on the cake, the most prestigious award for us was the coveted ‘Presidents Award’ at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019, which was so overwhelming and unexpected! The year finished with a feature on the BBC’s Gardeners World about our nursery and exhibit at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. Here’s hoping that 2020 will be as successful as last year! Judging by the amazing new varieties we have for this year, it could well be!
So it’s the start of a new gardening year and it’s now time to start thinking about planting summer flowering bulbs, especially our highly-awarded ‘Lilies‘. Our new lilies will be added to our website soon so please check back …
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
That’s new one on me. Do you mean Lilium Pumilum?

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/
