How to Grow Lilies

Posted on July 27, 2018 at 10:35 pm

Lilies are beautiful, versatile flowers that are available in many different colours and varieties, including Asiatic and Oriental. They will add such lovely colour to your garden, and their distinctive shape means they will stand out against other flowers. They will grow back every year, so make sure you plant them somewhere where you want to see them!

These are some tips for growing lilies successfully:

  • Lilies need a bright spot, potentially with a little shade. Sunshine is the most important thing, as they will not thrive if they are planted in the shade.
  • Make sure you plant them in the right type of soil. This will vary depending on the lily variety. For example, Asiatic hybrids will grow best in alkaline soil, whereas other varieties need acidic.
  • You can use a liquid fertiliser with potassium if you want to keep your lilies thriving. The flowers won’t last long, but if you would like them to last a little longer, this could be the answer.
