Growing lily bulbs in a greenhouse

This question was asked by
T. Gibson

Can I grow lilies in a large, airy greenhouse. I have a soil bed and large tubs.

Yes growing your lily bulbs in your greenhouse will be absolutely fine. We get great results from growing our lilies under glass. We use all our lilies to exhibit at the RHS Flower shows including the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show. We just advise on checking which soil you will need for the lily bulb varieties you have. The tree-like lilies (oriental trumpets) are happy in any soil.

It’s not too late

Now¬†Spring is well under way and we approach our ever anticipated Summer, please do not think it’s too late to plant lilies for flowering this year. I know that many of your lilies will have some nice growth on already but lilies planted now will show in as early as 12 weeks with the same fantastic results as planting in early Spring. Lilium Oriental Red Empire¬†has become very popular with our customers in the past couple of weeks, what a statement it would make in any Summer garden.
