Planting

This question was asked by
Jane Spree – 

I have had a variety of your fabulous lilies for a couple of years in pots – I want to move them onto new soil and pots. Today I removed them from the original pots and want some guidance on what to do next please? Storage? When should I replant ? Type of compost etc etc?

They need keeping in soil at all times so plant them back up as soon as possible giving them some fresh compost. A good-quality, multi-purpose compost mixed with John Innes No. 3 (50/50) is a good mix for all lilies. You can add some horticultural grit as well for good drainage.

Your lilies will be happy to stay outside during the winter, they just don’t let to get waterlogged as they will rot.
