Growing Calendar for Lily Flore Pleno - Bulbs
Delivery: Late March to Late May
Grow this pollen-free unscented lily if you hanker after a look of the exotica in your garden or in your pots. It’s a vigorous variety looking like an exotic tiger-lily featuring orange-red flowers that become heavily spotted with purple later on in the season.
Without the pollen there’s no risk of staining clothes or furniture if in vases indoors. And don’t they look simply wonderful indoors- this is a great variety for cut flowers. The dramatic many-petalled flowers with contrasting black spots get the attention of all indoors. Wonderful.
Simply plant the bulbs in the soil in spring and then watch the lily develop into a beautiful flower that exudes exotica.
We give you 3 plump lily bulbs that will fit 3 pots. Plant 1 bulb in the centre of a pot that’s 12in (30cm) in diameter or in a flowerbed with bulbs spaced 14in (35cm) apart.
Grow in pots with compost suitable for bedding to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in. If you grow them in flower beds mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in.
