Planting and flowering details
Show moreLily bulbs should be planted at a depth of 10-15 cm during spring or autumn. Be sure to plant the bulbs in light, moisture-retaining soil. Ideally in a corner sheltered from the wind, along the fence or between other plants, shrubs and trees. The flowers grow best when in full or part sun. When there are signs of frosts protect the bulbs and any shoots that come up as best you can with some leaves or branches so you can enjoy your lilies once again!
Show moreYou can move lilies around every 4 to 5 years. They will receive new energy from the fresh soil and these beautiful and colourful lilies will bloom again and again over the years. If you cut the flowers so that you can enjoy the colours in your home, do not perform this to the same plant every year as they will become exhausted. In addition, only cut off up to half of its stem otherwise it will cost the lily too much energy to gain back its strength.Lilies can suffer from the lily beetle which is bright red in colour, the grubs are yellow. To prevent them from eating the leaves and other arterial parts of the lily, remove the beetles, eggs or grubs and destroy them. Several pesticides exist, but lily beetles rapidly become immune to them.
Show moreAre you cutting your beautiful lilies for the vase? They will last much longer if they are not placed directly next to a fruit bowl (many fruits give off ethylene, to do with the ripening process). We also recommend removing the stamens when bringing the lilies indoors as the pollen can cause annoying stains. Leave the pistils and filaments and the flower will retain its natural, chic appearance.
