Hi it says these need ericaceous soil, but in the instructions it says use multi-purpose compost so do I need ericaceous compost or not? Can you please clarify?
All oriental lilies thrive in an ericaceous (Acidic) soil. So if you know your garden has an alkaline soil then they wouldn’t do very well planted in your borders. Therefore we recommend planting in pots, using a good multipurpose compost. However, for best results, we would suggest using a mix of both in equal parts.
