Pesticides for lilies

This question was asked by

I have bought some dynamix lillies from you. Last year my lillies were all diseased as they flowered. Any suggestions or pesticides I can use which is bird and animal friendly. Thanks.

Are you sure the lilies were diseased or do you think it could have been Lily Beetle? We recommend using a Neem Oil Spray you can make yourself. Using a hand spraye, add 1 teaspoon of Neem Oil (5ml) plus a small amount of washing up liquid (as a surfactant) with approx. 500ml water. So 1 part Neem Oil to 100 parts water (1:100).
