Easy to plant up and flowers last indoors through the spring for a welcoming spring scent that continues once you’ve come inside from the garden.

Your super-value kit includes:

  • 45 pips (growing tips of flowers) of lily-of-the-valley
  • 10 litres of ‘perfect-for-pots’ Gro-Sure Container and Basket Compost
  • 1 rattan container with a generous area of 15in (38cm) by 6 in (15cm)

How does my complete planting kit arrive

You’ll receive your compost and your container, brought to your doorstep and your lily-of-the-valley plants arrive to you as root-like rhizomes with green tips (pips).

They are the perfect- stage in their development to get growing fast once you plant them up.

The rhizomes arrive to you in a sealed plastic bag with a little compost surrounding them. This gives them a humid surrounding environment which is perfect for them to survive the journey between our nursery and your home.

How to store your perennial flowers before planting

If you cannot plant up your perennial flower plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the root-like rhizomes of your plants are kept in bag for the humid environment at all times.

Keep them in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.

How do I plant them up?

Simply fill your natural-look rattan container with Gro-Sure Container and Basket Compost. Your 10 litre bag fills the container, plus you’ll have a little left to top-dress more containers of beautiful flowers.

Place the nourishing rhizomes in the compost so the green-heads slightly show at the surface of the compost. 

Water your trough once you’ve planted your lily-of-the-valley rhizomes and keep on a light windowsill.

You want around 45 of the green-heads to show in the rattan container. And in April this will turn into a beautiful display of pretty white flowers full of perfume amid hosta-like spring-fresh leaves that capture the sunlight perfectly.

How many containers can I plant up?

Your 45 sprouting green-heads will fill the rattan container- just fill each container with more Gro-Sure Container and Basket Compost and place 45 heads in each for a glorious and scented display.

Lily of the Valley Scentastic Basket Bundle 5130-1199

Sometimes Lily of the Valley don''t flower in their first year. Results can differ from customer to customer and their own growing conditions. 

Tips to ensure they flower.

  • Plant as soon as possible after receipt.
  • Ensure the roots are kept moist, do not allow the compost to dry out but do not allow the compost to be sodden. If you place your finger on the soil surface the soil should feel damp NOT wet.
  • Place on a light windowsill or surface away from midday direct light.
  • 20°C is the ideal temperature. Some homes can be too hot and the flower might abort for survival of the plant.
  • After flowering move the plant to the garden, you can either plant up in an area of partial shade into moist soil or keep in the plant in the container providing drainage holes are put into the container.
  • Growing PerennialsGrowing Perennials

    Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
