Philippa - i planted 3 lilys bulbs last year very dark maroon colour ( looks similar to black jewel you are looking at ) i total forget about them. By time i notice slugs had nibbled right at very bottom of the plant and ruined 2 of the plants
But i mange to save them, put them in pot in greenhouse. now about 7 inch tall
Perki............you're a dark horse then.........you are maybe already growing the ones Tracey and I are after
Do please let us know how they turn out.
I love lilium. I have few collections from asiatic,oriental and goliath lilies.I even propagated them .At first, i will write their name in each pot but they always ended mixing up together.
Dayang...........join the club............no matter your good intentions.......labels get lost, written over or just plain don't go in the right pots
Still, it's always nice to have a surprise when they flower
Hi just reporting back about my maroon lilys what are starting to flower . They not as dark as black jewel
But after a investigation today, my other lilys muscat - stargazer - tree lilys haven't fared so well. My muscat & stargazer were starting to rot, and the slugs have got my tree lilys . I have potted them up in the Greenhouse and hoping for the best
