Plant Mix bulbs immediately upon arrival or ASAP but be very careful not break off any stalks or growth. Mix work best in an organic well-drained soil that is slightly acidic.
Mulch is recommended for Mix lilium, to keep the roots cool in summer and to protect from freezing in the winter. Lilium make excellent cut flowers because they are long -lasting but be sure if cutting, that you leave as much foliage as possible to store some energy for next year’s bloom.
Take off faded flower-heads after flowering, let the stem die off naturally and then remove it. The Lilium bulbs may be left in the ground and will re-flower during the next flowering season.
The pH should be about around 6.5. And fertilize lightly on a monthly basis with 5-10-10 starting when the shoots begin to emerge. Aphids can be pests. If they are planted in pots, keep the pots free from frost.
