Lily Giant Oriental Collection

Lily Giant Oriental Collection Fill your summer garden with an explosion of tropical colour! Oriental Lilies are prized for their large, trumpet shaped flowers and powerful fragrance. The tall, sturdy stems are cloaked in dark green foliage creating the perfect contrast to their vibrant coloured blooms. Oriental lilies prefer a moist, free draining, neutral to acid soil that is rich in organic matter. Prior to planting, add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil to give your lilies the best start. When growing lilies in containers, use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2. Lily bulbs should be planted at a depth of approximately 3 times their own height and 15cm (6) apart. Planting deeply helps to protect the bulb during particularly hot periods. Choose a sheltered, sunny position where lilies will grow with their heads in the sun and their roots in the shade.
