An unlabelled mixture of stunning Tiger Lilies.
I remember Tiger Lilies from my Grandmother’s garden. It is wonderful to see them back in circulation and it is a testament to their durability. They were hybridised for gardens, not florists, this means they are easy to grow and very floriferous. They are also a great choice for beginners.
Choose a humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny location – half a day of sun is perfect. Tiger Lilies appreciate afternoon shade in warmer climates. Water them in, and keep moist during active growth. Add some fertiliser (they love compost or manure) and mulch in autumn and summer, as the bulbs are coming and going.
Leave your Tiger Lilies in the ground to establish and they will bring you years of joy. You don’t need to lift the bulbs every year, simply divide them as they become overcrowded.
