What not to plant with lilies

This question was asked by
D. Mcquire

Are there any other summer flowering bulbs you wouldn’t recommend planting together with Lilies?

Not really. Most summer flowering plants can be planted alongside lilies. Just bear in mind lilies like a more prominent sunny area where as some bulbs would rather a more shaded aspect like martagons and cyclamen. It’s always worth thinking about staggering and lengthening the flowering period of your garden so you have more colour for longer.

For lilies, base your planting on the following flowering times:

Which lilies are best for alkaline soil?

If you have Alkaline soil then Asiatic lilies are best. Or hybrid lilies are also quite happy in Alkaline soil for example Longiflorum Asiatic lilies, Oriental Trumpet lilies and Martagons lilies.
