Deliveries oriental lilies

This question was asked by
Patricia Sanaghan

Hi, I’m wondering if you sell oriental lilies already blooming in pots, and if so, whether you would deliver these to a home address in London?

HI Patricia
Unfortunately, we do not. We only have them for sale as a bulb and it is at the end of the season now and we are out of stock of lilies.

Is it possible to by lily bulbs to give as Christmas presents?

Thanks

Hello there
Unfortunately, it is the wrong time of year to plant lilies at christmas. However, you can pre-order them for them and let me know they will receive them in February 2021. Or you can send a gift voucher to their email address to receive on Christmas day.

Planting lilies

This question was asked by
Jennifer Waring

I have just received a delivery from you. If I plant my lilies straight away is it too soon and will they survive. Thinking pots and should I put them in shade for now.

Hi Jennifer

Plant your lilies straight away and they will be in flower in 8-12 weeks. Lilies require full sun/partial shade. Pots are ideal for lilies, plant them in a good-quality, multi-purpose compost or John Innes No.3 is good. Hope this helps.

Lift or leave in

This question was asked by

Hi I’ve grown lilies for the first time supplied from yourselves my question is as I’m a complete novice At lily growing They are growing beautifully and I can’t wait for the flowers but Do I leave them in the ground over winter or lift them.
Many thanks Carl

Hi Carl
Believe it or not, lilies like a cold-dormant phase and like to be left where they are over winter, just ensure there is adequate drainage so they can’t get waterlogged. Lilies are very hardy and can tolerate up to -20°c. Hope this helps.

Information about Alliums

This question was asked by
AILEEN

I notice that the description for some alliums says
e.g. Height 90 – 120cm
But then further down it says size for this price 22cm
I don’t understand what that means. I wonder if you could explain, please?
Will the alliums grow to 90 – 120cm or just 22cm?

The height is how tall the flower will get and the ‘Size for this price’ is the bulb size.

When will you have most of your Lily bulb stock available?

This question was asked by
Kate Ellington

When is the best time to buy lily bulbs?
Also when will you have the greatest amount of bulbs available?

Thank you, Kate Ellington

Hi there,
Lilies are planted in the Spring usually but we keep ours in cold store so they can still be planted now (June). They will need planting as soon as they are received as they will be wanting to flower within 8 to 12 weeks. Everything will be back in stock for pre-ordering in August for delivery in February.

Everything we have available now can be located here:
