Strongest scented lilies

This question was asked by

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.

Feeding Oriental Lilies

This question was asked by

Do you recommend feeding pot-grown lilies after they have bloomed, and if so with what kind of fertiliser/plant food?

We suggest watering your oriental lilies moderately after they have finished flowering but do not let them get waterlogged. You can also try using a Tomato feed on your lilies.
