Congratulations on your choice - these are beautiful and easy to grow. The tubers do not know which end is up - literally. Plant them horizontally - they will decide which end to sprout, and you are on your way. Good luck!

Hi,
Re my recently purchased Glory Lily tubers.
Will you please tell me :-
1) How deep should they be planted, and
2) Which way up should they be planted.

Many Thanks.
