Hi, just a little note to say thank you for my lovely box of bulbs received this morning. it couldn’t have come at a better time as i had just viewed a virtual service for a very dear friend. Thank goodness for our gardens, mine gives me much comfort in these difficult times. With best wishes, Rosalind Berney.
Thank you for emailing. I am so sorry to hear your news. Such horrid times at the moment. We send our condolences to you. Enjoy your bulbs and stay safe.
I want to plant them in container and I need some extra advice please.
1. Do I have a chance to plant them now? Can I keep them inside the house?
2.what to do after blooming for next time?
How to plant Lily of the Valley Plant your Convallaria in the spring once the frosts have passed (or start off indoors). Soak roots in water for 30minutes if they are a little dry. If planting in the garden, find a shady area, preferably with moist soil. Plant about 5-10cm deep leaving the shoot just above the surface If planting in pots, fill the pot with compost and plant about 5-10cm deep leaving the shoot just above the surface. Plant pointy end up and 5-10cm apart. Water in after planting and keep hydrated. Always unpack your bulbs on arrival and plant as soon as possible. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to plant.
My Mum had Nerines in a vibrant pink, which I would like to grow in my garden, to remind me of her. The colour had no hint of purple or red, and is wasn’t a pale pink. I can’t tell the shade of pink from the bulb packets on your website. From images on the internet, the nearest I can find is Nerine Bowdenii Isabel.
All the best
Hi – is it Nerine Bowdenii, this is the most popular Nerine we have. A very vibrant pink.

How best do you care for your lilies once planted?
Make sure your lilies are in a nice bright location, preferably sunny although part shade will do. You may find your lilies will lean towards the sun if they are not getting enough throughout the day. Moderately water your lilies not allowing them to become to dry and ensure the soil has good drainage.
Any lilies will be ideal for pots, some lilies will grow tall so make sure you use a substantial pot for Oriental trumpet lilies. We also have lots of ‘Pot Lilies’ which are ideal for pots as they are a smaller variety.
