Did you know that you can get "TREE LILLIES " These flower for quite a while longer than others they easily grow to 6ft tall - my friend grows these . the bulbs themseves are quite expensive compared to some others but well worth it .
I myself are always looking for a bargain . This year 4-6 weeks ago the very large garden center were selling bags of lillies off for £1 , some had started growing , it was a good chance to try out diiferant ones . I even planted the bits that had broke off - admitted they werent in tip top condition and I had no idea what I was buying .
up to now I have several differant ones - turks turban is one but for the others I will have to wait and see !
They will be differant to what I have already I know for sure as the leaves are quite a mixture.
Their are bargains out there if you check round , so bear this in mind for next yearrr
The bigger places , once the main selling bout is over they just want to get shut of them to get the next lot of things on the shelves.
Dont know if your near but I am in south yorkshire , I shop at Brigg Garden center (BRIGG ) there are others in this range in other parts of the country . let me know if i can help .
