Lilium Oriental Hybrids Mixed
A gorgeous, colourful collection of Oriental Hybrid lilies, superb for bringing majestic beauty and sweet perfume to the late summer garden.
This balanced mix includes well-known, named varieties in romantic shades of pink, white, lemon, and red, which will flower throughout July and August.
Plant the large lily bulbs in deep containers and weave into your summer borders for an eye-catching and memorable display.
Oriental Hybrid lilies are perfect for cutting, with tall stems topped with multiple large, fragranced blooms.
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.
