Description

Lily Elodie is a double pollen free lily with sugar pink flowers. A double pollen free lily Elodie is just superb and will hit the mark with those who do not like the mess the pollen brings. Lilies are a very popular group and still one of the most popular garden plants grown in the UK. Very versatile and as such can be grown in borders, pots, patios and greenhouses.

Cultivation Instructions

Plant indoors: Lilies are very hardy and can withstand the cold so can be planted direct into soils outside in gardens, containers and borders.

Plant Outside: Lilies are a very versatile garden plant and they are ideal when grown in borders or containers around the house and garden. Once planted lilies are best left undisturbed for a number of years. Cultivate soils to a depth of 25cms and plant bulbs 10-15cms deep and 10cms apart. In heavy soils add humus matter and dig in well. Lilies prefer to be grown in well drained soils in the cooler or shadier parts of the garden. Lilies do like to get some sun during the day so very shaded areas are not recommended.

Care Tips:

Protect the young shoots from slugs and snails and remember to feed the bulbs with bone-meal or something similar during the flowering period.

In heavy soils add a handful of grit to the hole before planting the lily.

Lilies will benefit from using  root grow when planting.
