How to Plant
Guide and tips for plantinglilium(lily) bulbs
Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-draining soil.
Dig a hole that is 2-3 times deeper than the height of the bulb.
Mix some compost or other organic matter into the soil at the bottom of the hole.
Place the bulb in the hole with the pointed end facing up.
Fill the hole with soil and gently firm the soil around the bulb.
Water the soil until it is evenly moist.
Cover the area with a layer of mulch to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
Water the bulb regularly, making sure not to let the soil dry out completely.
As the plant grows, provide support to the stem to prevent it from bending or breaking.
After the flowers have faded, cut the stem off at the base and continue to care for the plant by watering it regularly and providing it with full sun or partial shade.
