DIY – Grow your own lilies

Bianca van de Wetering


Now that you can often be found outside in the garden with the beautiful weather, it is nice if your garden is beautiful. This is of course possible with a nice tray of pot lilies, which quickly give color. But did you know that pot lilies are also sold that take a while to grow? You can then plant these in your garden and watch them grow. Make sure to plant the root ball 2 to 3 cm below the ground. You can plant them together in a group, but also individually or in a row. Another great idea is to plant them between your shorter perennials. They will then grow over them and flower after 4 to 5 weeks. Since the bulbs are hardy, they reappear every spring and will flower in the summer.
