Please advise best soil/compost to plant the following Lilies in:
Shine On
These were purchased at Chelsea show and will be in large pots/tubs
Many thanks Chris

Hi there,

All of those lilies will be happy in a good-quality multipurpose compost or John Innes No. 3. You could always mix 50:50 using both the Multipurpose and JI No.3 for the perfect mix.

Ensure your pot has adequate drainage holes as lilies will rot if that are sat in water.

I was one of the lucky people to get a bunch of your lilies when you were dismantling your display at The Chelsea Flower Show on Saturday and I just wanted to thank you very much for them . The flowers are stunning (and so big!) and the scent is amazing.
I did actually buy some bulbs from you earlier in the day (Shine On) so I’ll look forward to enjoying them too.

Aww you’re very welcome. Thank you for taking the time to email. If you are on social media and fancy posting any photos, please Tag us in them, we’d love to see them.

Thanks again
