We give you 3 plump lily bulbs of each of the 4 varieties. 3 bulbs fit 1 pot perfectly. Plant the bulbs in a triangular formation in a pot that’s 12in (30cm) in diameter. Grow in pots with bulb compost to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in.
Alternatively plant in a flowerbed with bulbs spaced 14in (35cm) apart if you’re growing them as a group of lilies. We recommend a cluster of 5-10 bulbs for a lovely impactful display. 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.
