Asiatic hybrids are easy to grow. They do not require much fussing around. When you plant the bulbs in pots, it is best to use a good quality soil mix. In order to get abundant blooms, add a slow-acting fertilizer when planting, or feed the plant with a liquid fertilizer every fortnight during flowering. Lilies like nutrients as much as they like moderate moisture during growth. So remember that pots have limited resources. A container with a diameter of 15 cm and a height of 25 cm can be used to plant 1-3 lily bulbs, either of the same variety or of different varieties. Distribute the bulbs so that they do not touch each other or the walls of the container. In the garden, simply plant your bulbs, fertilise in good time and enjoy the blooms.
In the garden, choose humus-rich, well-drained soils in a well-lit area. Remember that lilies appreciate a little shade in the afternoon, especially in climates with hot summers. Mulch the soil during the summer to help maintain moisture levels. Generally plant the bulbs to a depth that is approximately twice the height of the bulb. Large bulbs are planted about 15-20 cm deep and shallow bulbs are planted 10-15 cm deep. The approximate planting distance should be within 30 cm. Store the bulbs in the refrigerator on the bottom shelf or in a frost-free cellar until planting.
Note that these bulbs do not sleep after they have been dug up. Not at any time in their cycle. This is why they need to be refrigerated. It is probably best to plant them immediately, if possible, when you dig up your own varieties. Many people do this in late summer and autumn. Note that the number of buds depends directly on the size of the bulb. For example, a 14/16 lily bulb will produce 4-8 buds.
