Free flowering Lily Asiatics are among the easiest of Lilies to grow. This glorious flowering variety is relatively easy to grow, producing a stunning display of flowers in spring/early summer (the exact flowering time can depend on when they are planted). They look delightful both in the garden or as a cut flower.
Full sun. Prefers free-draining soil rich in organic matter.
Plant lily bulbs 8-10cm deep, 15-20 cm apart, in well worked soil. If drainage is a problem, plant shallower and mound soil over the bulb.
For best results year after year feed with Kings Slow Release Bulb Food at the start of spring.
Tip: snap off old flowers or seed pods to encourage healthy bulb growth.
Growing in a Pot
Choose a pot at least 15-20 cm in diameter and 20-25 cm deep.
Fill at least 1/3 of the pot with Kings Potting Mix.
Place bulb carefully, making sure it's facing the right way up (the roots should be at the bottom).
Cover bulbs with 4-6cm of soil.
Bulbs in pots will need to be watered and fed more regularly than when they are planted in the ground.
