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.

Please could you tell me what lillies you have available for delivery now so I can plant in September. I am looking to add to my cut flower bed on my allotment where I have a few lillies already. I would like mainly pink colours and good scent that would make great cut flowers, ideally several varieties that will flower at slightly different times. Many thanks, Richard

Hi there,
The only lily we have available for dispatch and planting now, is Lilium Candidum – the Madonna Lily. We also have out Martagon Lilies available for dispatch this Autumn. All our other lilies will be sent out in the Spring for Summer flowering.

Hello, I was actually looking for Mardagon Lillies to give to my sister who lives in Birtsmorton Court for her birthday but see that you are all sold out. Can you tell me when is the best time to order the bulbs and is it possible to actually buy the lillies in flower? Many thanks

Hello there,

You can order your martagon lilies now but they are not dispatched unit the Autumn which is the best time for planting,
Best wishes
