This question was asked by

I’ve just received my Lillie if the valley bulbs and wonder if it’s best to plant them in pots , ( if pots which size?) first or direct into the flower beds?
Thanks

HI there,
It’s entirely up to you on where you wish to plant your roots.
If you wish to plant your lily of the valley in pots, fill the pot with compost and plant about 5-10cm deep leaving the shoot just above the surface.
Plant pointy end up and space your roots 5-10cm apart. So based on this, it will depend how many roots you want to plant per pot but allow for 5-10cm space between each root.
Water in after planting and keep hydrated.

How to plant Lily of the Valley Plant your Convallaria in the spring once the frosts have passed (or start off indoors). Soak roots in water for 30minutes if they are a little dry. If planting in the garden, find a shady area, preferably with moist soil. Plant about 5-10cm deep leaving the shoot just above the surface If planting in pots, fill the pot with compost and plant about 5-10cm deep leaving the shoot just above the surface. Plant pointy end up and 5-10cm apart. Water in after planting and keep hydrated. Always unpack your bulbs on arrival and plant as soon as possible. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to plant.
