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:
We advise the following flowering times for each category of lilies:

Can you tell me if these bulbs are individually packaged please as I would like to plant them separately into containers.
The Collections are not packaged individually as they are sold at a discounted price. If you would for them kept separately, you can mention this on your order in the comments section. Do let me know if you have already ordered (and quote your order number) and if it hasn’t already left us, I can make a note for the nursery team to do this for you.
Is it possible to still order double lilies for planting now? If so when would they likely flower?
You can order your lilies from us now but they will be dispatched in February next year as we are away from the nursery a lot now exhibiting at all the flower shows across the UK. However, we will still be selling our lily bulbs at the shows up until July this year. Once purchased at the shows and planted immediately, they will take 12 weeks to flower.
