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.
