How to plant lilies
Lilies appreciate good growing conditions and will reward any effort you make to give them ample water and fertilizer. Plant the bulbs as soon as you receive them at 10-15cm depth. Lilies grow best in full sun or part shade, and will appreciate a mulch of compost in dry periods. Low growing varieties are suitable for growing in garden pots and containers and make a stunning feature on a patio. You can even grow lilies in plastic pots and bury them in borders to fill any gaps that appear as the season progresses. Just be careful to stake the taller kinds - they often have so many flowers that the stems become top heavy.
Beware that lily pollen can be toxic to cats, so make sure you don’t plant them where cats may rub against them.
