As most liliums are stem rooting we strongly recommend you plant at 15cm deep. They give a much better display when planted in clumps of3,6 or 12 bulbs, 45cm apart.
Planting time is December to April. Lilium bulbs will greatly appreciate the shelter of low growing shrubs or other plants near their roots. In active growth, apply water freely and it is advised that every two weeks you apply a high potash liquid fertilizer.
