Lilies make fantastic cut flowers and do really well in a container, border or wild garden. This popular genus of about 100 species comes in a multitude of shapes and colours.
L.candidum was known in the UK in the 15th C and has been cultivated in the Middle-East since 1500BC as the scent from the white flowers was used to make perfume.

A well known pest is lily beetle – a little red bug that will destroy a lily in no-time. It is worth keeping watch throughout the growing season and pick off any adults, grubs or eggs as soon as you see them.
