HOW SHOULD I OVERWINTER LILY BULBS

This question was asked by
Jamie Sage

I currently have 9 Isabella lilies in 3 large pots (27 cm). Should I leave them in the pots in a cool dry place overwinter or lift and replant them next year?

Oriental and trumpet lilies

This question was asked by

I have lilies which have been grown in large tubs. The flowers have died off and the leaves are now starting to turn brown. Should I lift the bulb from the pots and store them over winter or leave them in the pots. The pots are quite large and heavy.Any advice will be appreciated

Thanks
Robert

Hi Robert

Leave the lilies where there are – they like a cold dormant phase over winter. Ensure there is plenty of drainage so the bulbs don’t get waterlogged.

Cut the flower head off and leave the foliage and stem to die back naturally. This can all be removed once it has turned brown and hollow.

Roselilies

I purchased rose lilies from you this year and more at Hampton Court last year – all have been grown in pots and stunning. I’m not sure how to care for them over the coming months – we live in Devon, so its comparatively mild.
Thanks for your help

Hi there,
When the Lily has finished flowering, cut any seed heads back and allow the foliage to die back naturally. Do not be tempted to cut the stem back until stems becomes hollow and brown.
Lilies like a cold dormant phase throughout the winter so they don’t need lifting. However, do ensure they have adequate drainage and do not get waterlogged as this will cause the bulbs to rot.
If planting in pots, it may be an idea to tilt the pots on their side in the winter to prevent waterlog.
Hope this helps.
