FAO "Honey" - Tree Lilies

I've had another excellent show of flowers again this year - I think the plants are just as high as last year. They have a lovely perfume. You did say Honey that you were going to try them - did you? Dottie May

Oh dear Dottie... *shame faced* I forgot all about them! I remember yours were amazing last year! How am I going to remember for next year? I've just never seen them in the garden centre. I'll look and see if I can buy them online. What time of the year did you plant yours Dottie.

Hi Honey, I kept the write-up that you sent me October last year and it says "plant in autumn with pointed end facing upwards at a depth of approx. 3 times their height and 15 cm (6") apart". Hope this helps. Dottiex

Honey, you sent me the write-up via "Gardening - Community - from Delia Online - 13 Oct 2010" - you said you'd Googled them. I will scan the article and send it on to you. Dottie.

Dottie, I'm just in the process of ordering these from Thompson and Morgan. Too much choice! I'm just wondering, have you grown yours in pots or in a border? I'm just wondering how many to order. We have such dry soil and low rainfall, that I'm wondering if I should grow them in pots as they show on the website?

Dottie, I've ordered them now. I'll decide where they're to go later. But I'm pleased because I found an offer and got them for £14.99 instead of £38.97... can't be bad. Thanks for the nudge Dottie. All the growing instructions are there on the website and so don't worry about scanning them.

Take care,

Honey :-x

I planted mine Honey in a large pot and it stayed outside over the Winter.

If they survived our last winter, they must be hardy! Thought they might have gone squishy with the frost... so that's good to hear. I'll give it some thought. It's quite windy here and so I will have to find a sheltered spot for them otherwise the wind will just have them over.
