    A neighbor shared the seeds of a lily regale. When can they be sown? How to care for plants?

    • OOO "Sad"

      — I had a good experience sowing lily regale seeds in January. The soil mixture was made up of purchased peat soil, compost and agroperlite in equal parts. Such a light substrate is favorable for tiny onions that cannot stand stagnant moisture. I chose a wide container, 5 cm deep, with drainage holes in the bottom. I poured soil into it, spilled it with Fitosporin-M solution (according to the instructions), put it in a warm place for several days so that the drug had time to “work” before sowing.
      I sowed the seeds, sprinkled with soil no more than 5 mm. In the case of strong deepening, the seedlings will not have enough strength to break through to the light. The crops were covered with cellophane and placed on a light windowsill. Subsequently, the moisture content of the soil was monitored.

      After germination, the seedlings were thinned out, leaving larger seedlings. When microbulbs formed, I fed them once every 2 weeks with a solution of Gumi-20 fertilizer (2 drops / 200 ml of water).
      At the end of May, the lily seedlings with two or three true leaves were transferred to the bulbous basket, sprinkled with a little compost and landed on the planting bed.
      Lilies grown from seeds bloom in the 4-5th year.

    Curly lily bulbs divide slowly - every 3-4 years. Therefore, for its faster reproduction, another method is used. As soon as the plant fades, immediately you need to dig out the bulb and, having separated the outer scales, plant again. Or carefully scoop up the earth and, without digging a lily, separate the scales. Then they are buried at 2/3 of the height in a container with light soil mixture of turf land, humus and sand (2: 1: 1). Sprinkle with peat on top, cover with a film and put in a shaded place.
    By autumn, 1–2 baby bulbs with roots and leaflet are formed at the base of the scales. They are separated (in September) and planted on a distribution bed, which for the winter is insulated with mulch or cut perennials with a layer of 5 cm or more.

    In the spring, as soon as the snow melts, and sometimes still not melted, I sprinkle the urea planting (10-15 g / m2). During the summer I use the Gumi complex liquid fertilizer (according to the instructions). I dust the soil at the “feet” several times with ash. My lilies do not get sick, and if I notice pests, I process them (according to the instructions) with Golden Spark. As they fade, I trim the crown. I divide and transplant through 3-4 of the year only in autumn. If this is done in the spring, then lilies in the current season will bloom badly. For the winter I cut stems at a height of 5 cm from the ground and mulch with peat, leaf litter or needles.

    In autumn, so that the bulbs do not get wet from prolonged rains and do not rot, you can cover them with a film that needs to be removed at the first frost. Some lilies, especially eastern hybrids, can suffer from a sharp difference in winter temperatures, lack of proper snow cover, so for the winter I cover them with spruce branches.

    What subtleties should be considered when planting lilies on a flower bed?
    Natalya Petrovna KEDROVA, Orenburg

    • OOO "Sad"

      In general, lily is a big pick. He likes to grow in the sun, and on a site that is protected from the winds, it is slightly shaded, and more importantly: there should be no weeds on well-drained soil. Plants do not tolerate moisture stagnation. If you overdo it with water when watering, then the bulbs can rot and die.
      The soil of this flower also has its own requirements. The plot is prepared 10-15 days before planting the bulbs. Dig up the soil to a depth of 40-60 cm. If the soil is heavy, make (hereinafter - 1 sq. M) a bucket of sand and peat, if light - only the second component. In addition, you need to add 2 buckets of rotted manure, 100 g of superphosphate and 50 g of potassium sulfate.
      Bulbs are usually planted and transplanted from late August to late September. You can do this later, but then you should cover the landing for the winter.
      Before the bulbs settle on the garden plot, they should be prepared by processing in a potassium permanganate solution for 20 minutes (it will be enough to take 2 g of the substance in 5 l of water).

      Planting depth is equal to the triple height of the bulb, and may vary depending on the variety and composition of the soil: on light it should be more, on heavy - less.
      Care for lilies will have to be carefully. Until they fade, they need sufficient, but not excessive moisture. It should be borne in mind that overheating of roots and bulbs is very harmful for delicate plants. To prevent this, planting is necessary to mulch or plant ground cover plants under them.
      Feeding is also important. They are carried out three times a season: when the first leaves appear, buds form and when they begin to stain. Lilies are very responsive to the use of a complete complex fertilizer or mullein solution (1: 10). And if you want the flowers to be bright and large, while the plants are not sick, then feed them three times a summer with wood ash based on: 100 g per 1 sq. m

    Lilies are usually propagated by babies.
    Are there any other ways?

    • OOO "Sad"

      The division of the nests of lilies is very common in floriculture. The bush is excavated without damaging the roots. Carefully separate small children, then large bulbs, share the fused. Small bulbs and babies are planted separately for growth.
      For all varieties and types of lilies, planting of flakes of bulbs is also used. The best time to breed in this way is the beginning of May.
      But these floral plants can be propagated and green cuttings. Cut the stem with a sleeping bud and plant the stalk in a box with moistened sand, cover with a film. Regularly watered. In a month, axillary bulb-babies are formed, which are planted to grow. It is advisable to use this method with slowly growing bulbs.
      Some species of lilies (Asian, tubular, tiger) during flowering in leaf axils grow bulb-like formations, which by analogy with garlic are commonly called bulbs. They mature after the flowering, usually in September. About maturity can be judged by the effort necessary to break them off the stem. If this happens easily, then the planting material is ripe. In addition, on the bulb at this time begin to form subordinate roots.

      Ripe bulblets are sown in boxes filled with a soil mixture consisting of garden soil, sand, peat, humus with the addition of wood ash, to a depth of 2-3 cm at a distance of 4-5 cm from each other. Boxes are digging into the ground in a dry, slightly shaded place. For winter, boxes with plants are covered with dry foliage and film. In spring, shelter is removed, plants are transplanted to beds and provide them with good care, including irrigation, weeding and loosening of soil under young plants. Flowering usually occurs in the third year after planting bulbochek.

    Last year I bought a lily bulb, but did not even expect to get a result.
    Now, having achieved success, I can give some advice to beginning gardeners.
    First, choose a sunny place. Depending on the size of the bulb, dig a hole (it should be 3 times the size of the bulb).

    Spill it with water, preferably with fertilizer - for example, a weak solution of quail or chicken droppings. After this, pour a mound of sand to the bottom and add 3 tbsp. To the hole. l fish meal (it is inexpensive and useful for all bulbs when planting). After preparing the seat, dip the bulb soaked in the growth stimulator into the ground by 2/3. If the soil is dry, water again.


    I transplanted lilies once every 5 years in late August or early September. When planting, add to the holes on 2-3 handfuls of washed river sand. The roots of the lilies neatly spread out on the sand and carefully sprinkled with fertile soil. I cover the bulbs with 8-10,
    With this planting, they quickly take root and gain strength
    During the formation of flowers I feed my pets with a solution of superphosphate, and when they blossom - a weak infusion of Mullein After flowering I give the stems a good dry and only then cut off

    Place slices dip paper, soaked in manganese. After such treatment bulbs are not afraid of any diseases

    What place in the garden is best for lilies?

    • OOO "Sad"

      Lilies grow well both on a sunny spot and in the penumbra. It is important to consider that these plants do not tolerate stagnation of moisture, which means that they should not be planted in flooded areas.
      It is preferable to plant lilies in fertile, humus-rich soil with the addition of coniferous humus or last year's needles. Oriental and Asiatic lilies grow better on soils with a slightly acidic reaction, tubular and marsagons - on slightly alkaline soils (before planting in the hole you can add lime, ash and complex fertilizer).

  9. Summerman, gardener and gardener (anonymous)

    Immediately after flowering, room lilies should be moved from the sun-sill to the penumbra and less often watered. If you follow this regime, the plant can please the blossom several times a year.

    Pot-lilies, that is pots, are suitable for growing in a room. They are less demanding of lighting and therefore do not stretch at home with a lack of light.
    My choice fell on lilies from the group of oriental hybrids, which amaze with the exotic beauty of flowers and amazing aroma. Varieties - Mona Lisa and Magee Before planting the bulbs, they processed them in a weak solution of potassium permanganate for 20 minutes, since they do not like a long stay in water. Then dried the onions and sprinkled them with ash.
    For planting, I took a pot about 20 cm high. I made a drainage layer about 3 cm, then a soil layer (universal purchased soil) - 5 cm, so that there was enough space for the roots. She laid the bulbs and covered the soil with a layer of 3 cm.

    With the growth of shoots, the earth was poured, since the lilies of the stalk-root species form additional supra-tubercular roots. They improve the moisture supply and nutrition, resulting in lilies bloom better. Fodder fertilizer for flowering plants every 2 weeks.

    After wilting, the flowers immediately removed, so as not to relax the bulb, but after the plants she continued to groom. The stem was cut off when completely yellowed. In winter, lilies can be moved to the cool place in the same pots and minimize watering. But, since I do not have such a place, I dug up the bulbs, put them in a slightly moist peat and cleaned them in the refrigerator until the next season in the vegetable compartment.

    I noticed that some gardeners in autumn mulch lilies with sawdust, especially young planting. But this is wrong, because in the spring these sawdust is usually caked and form such a dense layer that it is very difficult for young shoots to break through such armor. In addition, sawdust can acidify the soil.

    If you want to mulch the planting, it is better to use leaf litter for these purposes. I heard that lilies respond well to mulching with husk seeds. Another question is where to get it in such quantity ... Well, do not bite it all winter!

    Lilies plant in the spring

    Most often bulbs of lilies are planted in the soil in autumn. But in the middle belt with a changeable climate for some eastern hybrids, a spring planting is more reliable. I do just that. On a sunny site in the ground I add sand. If possible, I introduce a coniferous fall from the forest or peat (acid soil suits varieties of almost all groups of lilies). I landed in late April or early May. The optimum depth of planting is 2-3 the height of the bulb.

    If you still plant the lilies in the fall, it is important to protect them from frost in May. I follow the weather forecast: if they promise a minus temperature, I spill the flowerbed well from the watering can in advance, while adding each drop of water to Epi-am's ampoule. These measures help the flowers cope with stress after freezing.

    In the summer, I took some indoor flowers to the dacha and set them in the garden, not on the ground, but on pebbles, so that there was drainage and the insects did not crawl.
    But already at home I noticed that the plants are in trouble: someone eats them, leaving pellets on the pallet. She began to transplant and found in the coma of the earth small bugs, similar to armadillos. What is this "beast" and how to deal with it?

      You are right, not a harmful insect appeared in your flowers, but an animal from the order of crustaceans - wood lice. Although she lives on land, she breathes with gills, so she needs a moist, warm environment. In nature, woodworms, as a rule, hide under pebbles and feed on plant debris (non-decaying organic matter), benefiting, and not harming the garden. But since last summer was wet and warm, apparently, they multiplied greatly and moved from under the pebbles to flower pots, where they began to lack food, so they switched
      on eating soft plant tissues. It is clear that they do not belong in the house. It is quite easy to get rid of intruders. First, do not dilute the dampness in the pots, let the earthman to dry out. Secondly, to collect them all in one place will help the apple or raw potato in the cut out middles. The food put on the pallet next to the flower pot will become a trap. The trap with the moccasms is then simply destroyed. You can repeat this operation several times, if the cricket has divorced too much.

    Fusarium on lilies often leads to the death of bulbs. First, it affects the roots, then the entire bulb, spreading from the bottom. Externally on the plant, you can notice the yellowing and drying of the lower leaves. Often the cause of the massive spread of fusariosis is the purchase of infected bulbs, so be careful when planting. If you notice something suspicious, for example stains on scales, then separate them, and the bulbs themselves soak for 10 minutes in a solution of potassium permanganate.

    Often the development of fusarium in lilies is promoted by excess moisture and acidic soil (pH below 6,5). Also, be careful with the introduction of nitrogen fertilizers - you must not allow exceeding the norm.

    We deal with flowers literally 2 days a week - only on weekends. However, this time is enough for the plants to be healthy and decorative. For example, lilies are very good in our flower garden.
    Growing these flowers is not difficult even for beginner summer residents. We plant healthy bulbs (in summer, spring, autumn - depending on when we buy planting material) in the soil with the addition of sand to a depth equal to 2 bulb diameters. We plant them in a sunny place, leave the distance between the bulbs at least 30 cm, as the plants need room.
    Feeding can not be carried out the first 2 years. In dry weather, we must water the lilies - under the root, early in the morning. In our climate, lilies winter well without any shelter - we shelter them only if we notice on the site of rodents.
    The most important thing in growing lilies is regular weeding. Weeds should not be! To keep them smaller and to prevent the topsoil from drying out, we use mulch.
    For a bouquet of flowers we tear off with our hands, we do not cut the knife.

    For a long time I want to transplant lilies. I heard that it is better to do this in spring or autumn. In the spring I did not have time, so I'll be in autumn. Tell us, please, how to transplant lilies correctly, so that they grow well in a new place and do not get sick? Than to fertilize?

    In the middle of the summer you can pamper yourself with bouquets of lilies. But cut flowers better in such a way that the plant would have 1 / 3 stems. This is needed to power the bulb. After the plant you need to feed potassium chloride and superphosphate, and do not forget to water lilies, especially in droughty periods.

    In the axils of leaves, air bulbs develop abundantly in some lilies (L. tiger, L. Sargent, L. bulbous). In other words, they are also called bulbots. For propagation of these species, the bulblets are sown in the fall on a specially planted bed with loose soil, in the furrows, the bottom of which is sprinkled with a small amount of sand. The lilies grown in this way bloom for the third year.

    I like flowers very much, but I have not grown lilies yet. I want to try to plant the next spring. When is it best done? What is the place for planting and how to care for the plant?

    • Tatyana

      When and how to plant, depends on the species of lilies, and there are a great number of them: European, North American, Asian, Oriental, North Caucasian species, and many hybrids. All of them are distinguished by the degree of winter hardiness, the terms of flowering, the relation to the soil
      composition, watering, lighting, fertilizers. The planting period is preferable to autumn, depending on the region - from the beginning of September to the end of October. Bulbs in this period are at rest, which makes it possible to vary the timing. With spring planting, tubers can be purchased even in autumn, even in winter, there is time to choose, without rushing, the desired variety of lilies. During spring planting, plants take root well, it is ideal for late-flowering lilies (for example, eastern hybrids). But there are also drawbacks: lilies are brought to stores from cold stores, and when they are transferred to heat, they begin to grow rapidly, especially Asian blossoming hybrids. Bulb planting is necessary when the sprouts are small (up to 10-15 cm). Spring planting is not suitable for such types of lilies as Canadian, snow-white (candida), Chowitz, Ganson, single-shot, curly-haired. If you are a beginner grower, you should pay attention to Asian species and hybrids. They are winter hardy and quite unpretentious, grow well on slightly acidic soils. In nature, lilies grow in the shade of tall grasses, shrubs and are undemanding to lighting (with rare exceptions). It is not worth overfeeding them with organic and nitrogen fertilizers - greens will actively develop to the detriment of flowering and bulb development, winter hardiness and disease resistance will decrease.

    I like lilies very much, but the specimens that grow in one place for more than two years start to bloom worse. To increase flowering, I try to feed them regularly. As soon as the first sprouts appeared, I give nitrogen fertilizers, urea or ammonium nitrate, 30-25 g for 1 mg. Next, before flowering, my lilies are flavored with Nitrophus, containing phosphorus and potassium (25-30 g per 1 mg). And even this time I scatter ash around the bushes for the brightness of the flowers. And I never bring manure, lilies do not like it. I follow these recommendations, and my beauties are simply gorgeous!

    Lily protected
    Lilies are royal flowers. And so that their aristocratic heads proudly rise and delight, care and care must be appropriate.
    The most disgusting pest of lilies is an onion leaf beetle. Red-orange beetles eat leaves from the edges, gnaw holes in them. Beetle larvae cover the leaves with black mucus. As soon as the leaf beetle appears - consider all the beauty has disappeared. To save the queen, you have to work hard.
    Zhukov, my wife and I collect it manually and destroy it. And against the larvae, if they managed to appear, we use infusion of bitter wormwood, spraying them with plants. To cook it, mow the tops of wormwood during flowering and finely chop them. Then pour water and insist 24 h. Spray 3 times with an interval a week.
    Another very dangerous for the flower queen are various fungal diseases. In diseased lilies, the roots begin to rot and the plant is killed. In this case, spraying can not do. If gray rot, rust or fusariosis appeared on the flower bed, it will be necessary to etch the soil with formalin or completely replace it. And it is more reliable in general 5 years on this place neither lilies, nor lilies of the valley do not plant.
    Bulbs from the affected flowerbed can be used, only before planting they must necessarily be treated with a disinfectant solution.

    I reproduce lilies quickly and simply. To do this, I remove the upper damaged scales, and the inner tear off as close as possible to the base of the bulb. Mandatory etch pound-dazolom: just put in a bag of powder and shake several times. In another package I fill in a mixture of peat with clean river sand (you can add perlite instead of sand). For one glass of sand, there is one glass of peat. Scales treated with fungicide, I put in this package, slightly inflate it and tie it. For about three months I store the package at a temperature of + 21 ° C, and then I clean it in the refrigerator for a couple more. And about a miracle! By the end of this period, small bulbs appear on the scales.
    Irina Ageeva, city of Dubna
    By the way - if the onion flakes are soft, then they are separated, and if they are firm, they are planted together with the onion. This way you can propagate not only lilies, but also other species whose onions consist of scales, for example, certain species of hazel grouse (R. Kamchatsky, R. Maksimovich).
