Baby Lily bulbs.

West Somerset, England Eng

While I was re-potting last year's Lilies ('Dizzy', 'Stargazer' etc.), I found quite a number of little bulbs by the big ones in the compost. Could somebody please advise me how to grow them on to flowering size? They are all about 1" across at the moment. Do I pot them up singly or several in a pot? How long do they take? .

On plant Lilium




if you have veg plot I would plant then out about 3 inches apart in a row and leave them there for two years, they should be in flowering condition by then

John - thanks, but I don't grow veggies, so there's no spare ground to plant them in.

I shall take Sarah's advice - thanks Sarah!

Good luck with yours, Jacque. :-)

LOL - yet more pots outside the greenhouse! I bought lots of new ones this year - my husband says it's going to be 'the year of the Lilies'! I shall line them all up and take a photo of them. And yes, I did remember to label them!
