Red lily beetles

This question was asked by
Jane H

My poor martagon lillies were infested last year with red lily beetle. I picked them off every day, but still the came. Do you think sticky on the stem would help or do the fly in? Any suggestions please.

Hi there
They are a nuisance those beetles.
We have a lily beetle prevention spray and concentrate you can purchase to help combat the lily beetles.

Pollen free white lilies

This question was asked by
Angela B

Good Afternoon
I would like to grow white pollen free lilies in a pot and would appreciate knowing which is best, the only ones I had heard of were My Wedding but found another listed. Also do lilies have a single bloom from each bulb or multi flowers?
Thank you
Kind regards
Angela Booty

Hi Angela

Each bulb/stem can produce multiple flower heads.
We have quite a few white, double oriental lilies including Roselilies which are a newer variety that are pollen-free with a gorgeous scent:

I am keen to purchase Roselily Annika but it would appear that it is not available to purchase individually.
Can you confirm that it is to be included in the collection?
Many thanks

Hi there,

I am afraid not, the collection will contain a mixture of the roselilies we have in stock. if there is a particular variety you would like to include, please leave a note in the comments box and we will try our best to add it for you if it is in stock.

If you like Annika, have you seen Leona? That is very similar.

I have linked it below for you to have a look at.

Please advise of availability,

Do you have Tree Lilies that will thrive on Portland Dorset, we are limestone based really.

Tree lilies are happy in any well-drained soil type. Alternatively, they can be planted in pots.

We have lots of tree lilies here:

When to lift and move lilies

This question was asked by
Geoffrey G

When is the best time to move lily bulbs Speaking to your staff at Newby Hall flower show I was told that the white lily oricle is better than casa blanca. have you got any stock of it?

I would let your lilies die back completely and then lift and move them. This will most likely be the end of Autumn.
