Lilies in Containers:
Choose a container 15-20 cm in diameter and 20-25 cm deep, the size of the container really depends on the size of the bulb. 1-2 cm of gravel or broken pot should be placed in the bottom for drainage. Fill one third with good free draining soil mix, place the bulb in and fill at least 4-6 cm of soil over the top of the bulb. Keep adequately watered. Some varieties are particularly suited for pot culture and are magnificent in bloom especially when 3-5 bulbs are planted in a correspondingly large patio container.

 Asiatic and Oriental lilies come in a range of spectacular colours, shapes, sizes and of course scents. Fantastic in pots, and one of the best cutflower varieties.

Asiatic lilies bloom first in early summer, not long after Paeonies start blooming. They are incredibly hardy providing they are grown in relatively free draining soils. Asiatic's are the shortest type of lily and come in a huge array of colours and shapes, from pastel to tropical.

Asiatic Lilies don’t have much of a fragrance, but they're perfect for adding a splash of colour to the garden.  

Oriental lilies have that famously strong, heavenly fragrance. They are tall and stately. Usually Oriental Lilies grow slower than Asiatics, often blooming about the time when Asiatic lilies are beginning to fade (mid/late Summer)
