I want to plant up an old metal coal scuttle measuring 16in x 12in x 10 in deep with white lilies. Can you please advise how many bulbs I would need and the best variety to choose? I am thinking along the lines of keeping to white but am open to the possibility of introducing perhaps pink. I like My Wedding and Leona but would welcome your comments. A lighter fragrance would be my first preference
I would recommend having maybe 6 lilies within this space. My Wedding and Leona are both stunning varieties and will produce a lovely scent for you. If you are after a slight hint of colour, perhaps mix them with Roselily Kendra as this has a subtle pink edging to it which is simply stunning!
Does the oriental Roseliliy Natalia need Sun and, if it does, how much sun per day?
Thanks for this question!
Roselilies, like all lilies, do like some sun throughout the day but can tolerate partial shade as well. For best results, roselilies/lilies need six to eight hours of sunlight a day. If it’s too shady, the stems will attempt to lean towards the sun and may fall over.
Hi, I am looking to order some rose-lilies on line. Last year I bought Rose-lily- Kendra bulbs at Chelsea (and Isabella as well). Can I buy Kendra on line? If not any recommendation for a replacement?
Both lilies were stunning last year.
Roselilies are stunning aren’t they? We have plenty of Roselilies to choose from online. Please visit https://www.hartsnursery.co.uk/Roselily-Series/ . I have added Roselily Kendra online for you to order, we also have Roselily Natalia and Roselily Roberta which are similar in colour, white with a splash of pale pink. Just gorgeous!
Hello, I am looking for lilies to plant which will flower by 1st Sept 2018 for planters at a wedding. I do not know if any lilies in flower then & if so, which ones & when to order/plant Looking for white colour only. Thanks, Grateful if you can suggest anything.
I would advise ordering your lilies for delivery later into 2018. If we dispatch them to you say the end of May/beginning of June, they usually take 8-12 weeks to flower (depending on the variety – Asiatics are usually quicker to flower than say the orientals). I think Roselilies would be perfect for a wedding especially as they don’t have any pollen but still have the scent and flower a little later. Roselily Jisca or Roselily Kathinka are lovely white flowers with a fragrance. Alternatively, we have a gorgeous Double Oriental Lily called My Wedding – which would be perfect too. If you wish to order online, please just mention in the comments that they are for a wedding in September and change the delivery date to May.
