Please can you advise me of availability & price.

Can you confirm when you will have Eucomis Bicolor tubers available for sale? Presumably this will be the best time for planting?

Advice on preparing lilies for overwintering

This question was asked by
Frances

Hi there,

I bought a couple of lily collections from you last year at the Wisley flower show – they’ve made a fantastic display in the garden this year. Thank you.

This has been my first experience with growing lilies and I am a little confused now with how far to cut them back in preparation for winter.

I have read lots of advice about pruning the seed heads and “allowing the foliage to die back naturally” but once the foliage has begun to turn brown, how much of the main stem or stalk should be cut back?

Hope you can help.

Hi there,

When the Lily has finished flowering, cut any seed heads back and allow the foliage to die back naturally as you say. Do not be tempted to cut the stem back until stems become hollow and brown. Once this has happened, you can cut the stem back to the service or leave about an inch of stem.

Could you please advise on when they will be in stock. I have some lily bulbs in my basket but would like to add the begonias before I pay for them.

HI there,

These are now back in stock for you. If you wish for them to be delivered together with your lilies, ensure to put the delivery month as March for your lilies. Otherwise you may be charged twice for P&P.

Good evening, I have recived my Lutea & Persica bulbs today. I must say I was completely flabergasted by the size of your bulbs, I honestly was. They are humongous. They are easy triple the size of bulbs I have bought elsewhere which cost more. I will certainly only be buyomgall my future bulbs from you. A great big thank you for superb bulbs at a fantastic price.
Regards…… Sylvia.

You’re very welcome. Thank you for your feedback, it’s always good to hear from a happy customer!
