The No.1 Selling Lily in the World!
Before you plant your Lily, choose a sunny spot with moist well-drained soil; they can tolerate some shade. Plant in groups of 3-5 bulbs, about 12 inches apart, so they have room to grow. Small lily bulb varieties should be planted 2- to 4-inches deep, and larger lily bulb varieties should be planted 6-inches deep. Watering very well once a week is usually better than a few light waterings during the week. During the hot months water as needed.
Mulching your Lily garden during the fall and winter is advised. Spread the mulch back in the spring as the lily stalks emerge from the soil as it will no longer be needed. If your soil needs amendment, fertilize the lily garden in the early spring using a 5-10-10, usually a good choice.
Remove the dead flower heads as soon as they die off, but leave the foliage. This gives the plant energy back to the bulb for next season.
It is strongly suggested that you dig up and divide the lily bulbs every three or four years (the bulbs will multiply). Replant the bulbs in new patterns and holes, and if possible, extend the lily garden area you have already been using.
