I have just received my packs of lilly of the valley.Please could anyone tell me how to plant them out in pots for my cousins and I.
AS you probably know they have arrived as dry roots with a pip and small shoots
My Cousins and I want to grow them to remember their Mother and My Aunt.
I want to plant them in pots for each of us, and also to plant some where the the ashes of my my Aunty Joyce are spread.
When can I plant into pots and what soil and drainage would I need? Also where should I keep the pots over Winter.
Any advice would be welcome Tank you Minplant



Hi dont know if you got an answer.

Use a good compost and just cover the pips. A 4" deep pot will be fine, but make sure the pot has drainage holes and they will be fine. I would then put the pots out side so they get the rain etc. they dont like full sun and if they are happy they will rapidly grow sidewards and take over large areas. So if you plant in the ground where your loved ones are make sure they can go on the rampage.
