I purchased some lilies from you at the Harrogate Spring Show

This question was asked by

The lilies I purchased had shoots about an inch/inch and a half. When I planted the bulbs on my return home I followed the instructions and buried the whole thing six inches deep.
Should I have buried the shoots or left them exposed as there is no sign of anything growing?

Hi there,

Yes it sounds about right what you have done. You need to plant the bulbs with 4-6inches above the top of the bulb. The shoots will find their way. Ensure you have planted them in well-drained soil or they will rot and in a sunny position (not shaded). I’m sure you will see them pop out of the soil surface soon as long as they are in the right conditions.
