This question was asked by

I have just received an email saying this is now in stock however when I click on the link it says Zantedeschia ‘Cantor’ (Pack of 3 Bulbs) is still out of stock.

Hi Stephen

Sorry about that, the Zantesdeschia are now available to purchase online for delivery in the spring when they need planting for a glorious display come the summer! Why not plant these alongside the deepest red calla lily Majestic Red for a really dramatic visual point in your garden!

My calla lilies bought from you have been fantastic this year. They are planted in garden but can I leave them there to bloom again next year? Do I cut stems to ground when needed?

Hi, we bought some calla lily bulbs at Hyde Hall yesterday. Can they be planted now or should we wait until spring? If the latter what\’s the best way to store the bulbs?
Thank you
Claire

Hi Claire

Plant them now and they will be in flower in a couple of months. They will then revert back to their usual flowering cycle next year. You can find planting and care instructions on each product page.

Calla Lily planting and care advice

This question was asked by
Miranda

Hi

We purchased 2 lots of 3 rhizomes from you at Hampton Court Flower Show in early July with the intention of planting them in pots on our sunny patio. However, when I looked up when they should be planted, it clearly states they should be planted in the Spring, which has obviously long gone.

Please can you tell me whether I should go ahead and plant them now, or should I store them in a cool, dark place and plant them next Spring?

I intend to use John Innes No. 3 but should I mix this with something else?

I look forward to hearing.

Miranda

Yes plant them now and they will flower this year still – just a little a later as they’ve been held back in a Coldstore.

They will then revert back to their usual flowering cycle next year.

Plant in a loam-based compost such as John Innes No. 2 or you can mix it with a good-quality multi-purpose compost if you would like. Either is fine. Ensure they have adequate drainage and placed in a very warm position to get them activated.

Hi,

We bought some Lilies from you last spring and were delighted with them when they flowered later in the year. This year however the Calla lilies have all produced leaves but of all the bulbs in three different pots we only managed two single flowers ! We lifted the bulbs last winter and replanted them in John Innes No 2, they have been in leaf now for approx two months is there anything we can do to encourage them to flower this year ?

Thank you

Hi Peter

Did you cut the flowers back last year? If it doesn’t have enough stem and foliage to die back and feed the bulbs, then they may not flower as well the following year. I would give them a feed next year as you start to see signs of growth. Try using a high potash fertiliser like a liquid tomato feed.

Calla Lilly, Hedychium, Amarines & Amaryllis

This question was asked by
Moira R

I bought some Calla Lilly, Hedychium, Amerines & Amaryllis bulbs from you at Tatton. I have potted them up but am now wondering if that was correct or if I should have left them until Spring. Also, what type of soil is best – gritty, manure or just garden soil?
If they do start growing just now should I remove them from the pots to over winter?
Would be grateful for advice.

Thanks, Moira

Hi Moira

Yes you have done the right thing as they still want to flower this year. They have just been held back in a coldstore and will flower later in the year. They will then revert back to their usual flowering cycle next year.

We have planted instructions care advice for each variety on our website. Please click on the links below and they will help you with overwintering and soil.

Amazing calla corms

This question was asked by
Mark R

Hi,

This year I have purchased 133 different calla lily cultivars from lots of different online suppliers including some from you and I have to report the corms you supplied have been the best corms by far to the point that I had to contact you to let you know. Your corms are at least twice the size of anyone else and they are of about the same price or cheaper in some cases. Of course I cannot comment on flower colour quality because they are not growing yet so I hope the quality continues.

Kind regards

Mark

Hi Mark

That’s lovely to her – thank you so much for letting us know. we pride ourselves on supplying top size bulbs, corms and rhizomes where we can.

Mrs josephine H

How do I look after a calla Lily during winter in a big pot? What months do they flower and can they stay in a pot.

Calla Lilies are ideal for planting in containers for houseplants or for seasonal outdoor bedding displays. They need planting the spring for flowers throughout the summer months. Usually around June, July and August and they are such a long lasting flower.
If planting in pots, use a loam-based compost like John Innes No. 2 but a good multi-purpose compost is also fine.
Lift Rhizomes before the first frosts and store them over winter before replanting them next Spring (after the risk of frost has passed).
Store Rhizomes in trays of compost in a cool, dark, frost-free location, e.g a garage, shed, warm greenhouse or conservatory.
