Some tips for our Lily Lovers!

Hi Lily Lovers!

Hopefully everyone has had beautiful lilies this year in their garden. The ‘Tree-like lilies‘ have been fantastic, there are so many new varieties. The perfume isNew lilies banner wonderful. These extremely tall lilies tower above the shrubs in borders with sturdy stems and an abundance of blooms.

So, if your lilies have bloomed, now is the time to dead head them. Cut just below the last bloom leaving the stem to die back completely, this feeds the bulb for the following year making the bulb bigger, producing more blooms. Wait until the autumn to repot. Lilies should be re potted every three years. The little bulblets you find can also be potted to produce blooms in a few years time! Remember to keep your lilies well drained over winter. This is really important or they will rot. Tip pots on their side or place them on a couple of house bricks. We have more tips on planting and looking after your lilies here including how to keep those pesky Lily Beetles away!

We have some fabulous new varieties for next year, especially ‘Roselilies‘. These beautiful double varieties are highly scented and have no pollen. They will soon be added to our website, so please check back and order for February delivery.

Don’t forget it will soon be time to plant your spring flowering bulbs. These are also on our website. We have
some stunning varieties of Tulips but if you want height, Alliums are a must!

Lastly we are at the ‘Shrewsbury Flower Show‘ this weekend (Friday 12th to Saturday 13th August). So if you are coming, we will see you there!

Happy Gardening!

The show season is upon us…

That’s right, we are back travelling the UK for the show season. We have already been to Wisley and Suffolk this year and next week we are off to Cardiff for the RHS Flower Show Cardiff. The shows are a great day out with plenty of things to see, places to eat and of course, to purchase all your gardening needs. We will be exhibiting our display of Lilies at many of the shows and you can purchase our Lily bulbs from our ‘pick n mix’ style of shop. Look out for our show offers!!  We will also have many other favourite Summer flowering and Spring flowering bulbs available including some unusual varieties. See you at the shows!!

Our Lily Display

We were fortunate enough to have a professional team from Zumm Creative come over to the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show this year and capture some great footage of our lily display and outside Garden where we won a Gold Medal for our lilies and Best Plant Village Exhibit for our garden.

Well done to all – it looks great!
