Planting Roselily Isabella bulbs

This question was asked by
G. Ellis

Lovely to see you at Chelsea 2019! Bought Isabella rose Lily x5. Question is can I plant all 5 in a 10-14 inch pot please? The pot doesn’t taper so is quite ‘roomy’. Look forward to shopping with you in the future.

Yes – that that’s absolutely fine to plant your 5 x Roselily Isabella lilies in a 10-14inch. The more space the better.

Will lily bulbs grow on a north facing balcony?

Will lily bulbs grow on a north facing balcony? I am interrested in the Roselilies.

As long as they get some Sunshine through out the day – at least a few hours and they are planted in a well-drained soil, then they will be absolutely fine.

Roselilies are a gorgeous variety. They have no stamen but they still have a lovely fragrance.

What do I do to get the flowers on my lilies as big the following years.

I have Isobella from last year but the flowers are half the size. I feed with tomato feed. This year I have Lorena, Eremo and a few more, I would like to have big flowers next year like this year. What do I do? Your lilies are so beautiful. I have more on order for next year. Thanks, Kind regards, Pat

Hi there,

You need to ensure your lily bulbs are planted in the correct soil for each variety. So Lorena and Isabella like an ericaceous soil as they are Oriental Lilies and Eremo will prefer an Alkaline soil as they are an Asiatic Lily. I would advise mixing in some John Innes No.3 with a good multi-purpose compost for best results. Also, when feeding with a tomato feed, are you using 1/4 strength?
