They are also excellent for mixed borders and as a colourful ground cover. Their striking flowers attract pollinators like butterflies and bees, enhancing the ecological value of your garden.

Planting and Growing Instructions
  • Location: Choose a sunny spot in your garden. Asiatic Lilies prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Aim for at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day.
  • Soil: Plant these lilies in well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. They prefer slightly acidic to neutral soil (pH 6.0 to 7.0).
  • Planting: Plant the bulbs in the spring or fall, about 4-6 inches deep and 6-8 inches apart. Ensure the pointed end of the bulb is facing upwards. If planting in containers, use a deep pot to accommodate their root system and a quality potting mix.
  • Watering: Water the lilies regularly, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Mulch around the plants to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Fertilizing: Feed your lilies with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring as new growth begins. A second feeding after flowering can help promote healthy bulbs for the next season.
  • Pruning: Remove spent blooms to prevent seed formation and encourage the plant to focus on bulb development. Cut back the stems to the ground once the foliage has yellowed and died back naturally.
