Lilium Asiatic Hybrids Mixed
A bold and vibrant collection of Asiatic lilies, ideal for adding colour, structure and scent to summer containers and gardens.
This well-balanced mixture of both new and popular, reliable varieties are also perfect for cutting and adding to floral arrangements or bouquets.
Plant the bulbs ideally in autumn, into pots or planting holes lined with a layer of grit and well-drained soil and look forward to a stellar, exotic display of pink, orange, red, yellow and ivory blooms every summer.
To cultivate lilies, choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil, digging a hole 15cm deep. Plant the bulbs 15-23cm apart, ensuring they sit 15cm below the soil surface. Water the surrounding soil well, maintaining soil moisture until growth emerges. Young shoots may be susceptible to slug damage, so use wildlife-friendly methods such as a top layer of sand to protect emerging growth. Most Lilies can also be grown in pots – ensure containers are deep and have large drainage holes in the base. As the majestic stems ascend, they will reach heights of 45-150cm, depending on variety. Support taller cultivars with stakes as they grow. Use dilute, balanced liquid plant feed every two weeks during the summer. Spray as soon as you notice the bright red lily beetle or their larvae.
