Do you have any advice as to varieties of lily suitable for planting in a pot, preferably with scent, that resist lily beetle? many thanks

Any of the Oriental dwarf lilies are great for pots as they are shorter varieties. However, any lily variety can be planted in a pot. If you want them to be scented, then avoid the Asiatics as they don’t carry a fragrance. I’d suggest Lily Salmon Star, this is a stunning pot lily with a pretty scent. Unfortunately, Lily beetles are attracted to most lilies. They aren’t picky! Have you seen our Lily Beetle Prevention spray?
