Lilly Nymph and Dalian

This question was asked by
C. Flower

Dear Harts Nursery,
I purchased the above lillies from yourselves earlier this year and planted in large terracotta pots.
This is the first time I have grown tree lillies, so am a complete novice.
They are growing well and have buds. Should I be feeding them and if so, how often and with what?

Kind regards,
Carolyn Flower

Hi Carolyn

Yes you can feed your tree lilies when you start to see signs of growth with a diluted tomato feed every 2 weeks.

Once they have finished flowering, snip off the flower heads and leave the stem and foliage to die back naturally before removing it all. This will feed the bulb for the following year.

I like to know what most scented lilies you have in stock pack of 10-15.

Hi Anthony

Our lilies will be available to pre-order very soon. Please keep checking back on our website and/or click on one of the links to be notified when something is back in stock. As a general rule of thumb, the whiter the variety of lily the stronger the scent – this is with anything mixed with an oriental lily though. Asiatic lilies do not carry a scent as they attract the insects by their bright colours.

Have you seen:

Roselily ‘Aisha’ (SKU176191)

Lily ‘Zambesi’ (SKU17616)

Lily ‘Nymph’ (harts1027)

These lilies all carry a fantastic fragrance.

Hello. I am not too bothered about the flower colour, could you tell me which are the most highly scented lilies please

Hi there
Any lily that is a full Oriental lily or a hybrid Oriental lily will carry a fragrance. The whiter the lily the stronger the scent. This is because they will attract the insects by their scent rather than colour. Lilium Nymph does have a particularly sweeter smell. More like cinnamons. This is a stunning variety too.

Which stargazer lilies have the best scent and nectar? I wish to attract Convolvulus Hawk-moths.

All our white oriental lilies are extremely highly scented as they attract insects through their fragrance and not colour.
We do have Lilium Oriental Stargazer or you could try a whiter variety. Or you could even try Nymph lilies as these have a slightly sweeter scent.
