Lilium ‘Asiatic Landini’ makes for an alluring image with its dark red, dramatic flowers atop strong stems of waxy, deep green foliage.
A mainstay of summer borders, lilies are one of the all-time favourite summer-flowering bulbs and are ideal for summer borders, containers or pots and as cut flowers.
Lily bulbs should be planted as soon as possible, ideally in late autumn, however they can still be planted throughout spring in time for their summer bloom. Try to find a position of sun or partial shade where the base of the lily will be in shade but the head will be in sun.
The bulbs should be planted around 12-15cm deep and 30cm apart in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. When planting in a container make sure to use ample good-quality, multi purpose compost such as John Innes No.3.
Deadhead the blooms promptly and cut the dead stems back to ground level at the end of autumn to help discourage diseases.
