Purchasing Arsenal Lilies

This question was asked by
Christine W

Hi would you be able to email me when you get the Arsenal lily back in stock please.

Unfortunately, I don’t think this one will be available again.

Have you seen Delicate Joy or Heartstrings? These are quite similar to Lilium Arsenal.

Storing lilies over winter

This question was asked by
Nina B

This year I purchased a selection of your Lilies, for the first time, and I am still enjoying their amazing colour, form and scent. Please can you give me advice about storage over winter. Many thanks.

Hi Nina

Cut the flower heads off when they have finished flowering. Allow all the foliage to die back naturally. Leave your lilies where they are, either in the ground or in pots. Lily bulbs like to have a cold dormant phase throughout winter. Usually by the end of autumn you can remove all the spent foliage and stem. Ensure your lilies do not waterlogged or too wet as this will rot them.

I wanted to let you know how much joy and beauty your Lilies have brought to a sheltered area of our garden in North Yorkshire. Believe it or not, they are just flowering now and the scent from them while having a cup of tea this afternoon was a real lift to the spirit as Autumn creeps over the fields! I planted them in pots and despite signs of a potential attack by the dreaded red beetle and some wily slugs, they have survived and are stunning! At the first sight of these pesky little bugs, I checked each pot thoroughly every day until I felt confident they had disappeared! I am now ready to look at more Lilies for next year – as you can see I have become obsessed – for next year and also some tulips. If the tulips \’give\’ like your Lilies I will have so much happiness from Spring through to Autumn!
Thank you for the expert quality of your beautiful bulbs!

Kind regards


Hi Cathy – thank you so much for your kind words. It makes us smile knowing we have cheered you and your garden up during this uncertain time. Enjoy.

Double Lilies

This question was asked by

Hi, I purchased some lily bulbs earlier this year which I potted up, because we have recently had so much rain and very strong winds I cut my lilies to enjoy in a vase. I am now worried that I have not left enough leaves on the amistad lilies to feed the bulbs, should I keep them or put them on compost tip.


HI Sheena

Have you left 2ft of stem? If so, you should be ok.
If you haven’t – don’t worry! I would advise giving them a tomato feed in the spring next year and a slow release fertiliser. This will help its growth. They may not be great next year but they should come back better the following year.
