Tree Lilly

This question was asked by
M. Millward

I wish to buy some tree lilly’s but not sure which. I live in Blackpool and plant my lilly’s in containers to protect them from mice and frost.
I am looking mainly for scent but also colour but mainly scent to fill my small garden. Can you surggest some types please. I would like them to reach at least 6′ tall.

Hi Mark
All our tree lilies are fantastic. Usually you find the whiter the flower, the stronger the scent but Tree lilies are all highly scented . Have you seen our Tree lily collections which are a good offer at a slightly reduced price?

I bought some of the above lily’s from the Southport Flower show. When I opened the bag they have grown about 2 inches. I have planted them in pots will they flower this year ?

Hi there – yes they have just started sprouting and that’s absolutely fine. I’m pleased to hear you have planted them straight away as they will be in flower in about 8 to 10 weeks.

Novice to growing lilies

Hi Just discovered your web site, I am a Lilly fan but a complete novice gardener at 76 years old. I am about to take a weeks holiday but I will be ordering your Lilly collection when I return also the cure for the Lilly Beetle. Expect my order in Sept.
Regards, Harry

Thank you for your email Harry. All lily bulb orders are dispatched in the spring next year now. Lilies are so easy to grow, especially if you start with the Tree-like lilies as they are happy in any well-drained soil in a sunny position.

When to divide lilies

This question was asked by
Hazel Hobday

I have some tree lilies which clearly need dividing. I was going to wait until the spring but should I do it now?
The plants have stopped flowering and they have really struggled with fungus on the leaves this year so they are quite brown and bedraggled already.

Wait until everything has died back completely. Ideally this will be in the Autumn, then you can divide your lily bulbs and replant them. Perhaps try feeding them with a tomato feed when you start seeing signs of growth next year.

TREE LILLES

This question was asked by
T. LETHERBY

I am looking for tree lillies that have a long flowering period and are reasonably tall in height. What varieties would you recommend?

Good afternoon,

All the tree lilies will flower about the same length of time. I would recommend the Conca D’or Lily for a good strong, all-round lily. However, our Tree Lily collection is very good value for money and contains 4 different varieties:

Nymph (harts1027)

Robina (harts1029)

Manissa (harts1025)

Cocossa (SKU17672)

Which soil type for Tree lily bulbs

This question was asked by
R. Fleckner

Will my Lily bulbs grow in a fairly heavy soil and without ericaceous compost. The border was composted thoroughly a month ago.
I ask because I’ve never grown lily bulbs before!

Good news, Tree-like lily bulbs are happy in any soil type as long as it is free-draining. These gorgeous lilies don’t like to get waterlogged. Hope that helps.
