Okay, all you green thumb gardeners. It's bulb planting time. I have some oriental lilies to plant. I planted some in the past, but this time I want them to stand out in the garden and make a statement--so to speak. In other years, I would plant one or two here and there. All suggestions will be greatly appreciated.--IrishLass.
Thank you Xeramtheum. I didn't know that site existed. I will give it a try. I haven't been getting much feedback to a lot of my questions. Maybe I was on the wrong forum. Thanks again and have a nice weekend.-IrishLass
I would Plant about 5"+ apart or so, giving the blooms room to show; also to allow for little bulbs to spread. Maybe consider a staggered bloom time..cover a few weeks..I like the hiding feature.,but allow for air flow. If behind shrubs maybe could surround with chicken wire to prevent bunny nibbles a Major problem in my neighbors lily bed.
I like clusters of 3 or 5 instead of a line of blooms, but that is just a preference.
Maybe plant annuals that would add charm to the area and still be able to be dead headed after the lilies are done. The tall snapdragons are great for that in my garden.
