Lilies Orange For Patio And Containers Set of 7 Bulbs
Lilies are one of the truly great garden plants, and they are beloved by gardeners everywhere. Their beauty, diversity, extended season of bloom, graceful stature and overall reliable disposition make them a perfect addition to your patio or container garden.
- Proper drainage is very important for lilies.
- While they like moist soil, sopping wet soil will cause the bulbs to rot.
- Make sure you select a container with drainage holes on the bottom.
- For extra drainage, add a layer of rocks in the bottom of the pot.
- This layer of rocks will also help stabilize the pot if you are growing tall lilies, but it will make the pot a little heavy to move around.
- Select the proper size pot for the amount of lilies you are planting.
- The bulbs should be planted about 2” apart.
- Best to plant just a few inches deep.
- Plant them early spring and put them in a frost free area at first so that they will receive their required cold period, a garage, basement or shed will do.
- Keep them moist and watered.
As bulbs are essentially storage mechanisms, they already contain everything needed to produce flowers.
There is no need to fertilize them.
After flowering, remove the root ball from the pot and plant in your garden prior to frost to enjoy blooms next spring.
