    Bulb Tiger Lily

    Small black "balls" appeared on the lily stems. I heard that with their help the plant can be propagated. How to do it?

      - Many lilies have this feature: tiger, drooping, etc. I, for example, have fiery red beauties of the Tigrinum Splendens variety. The "balls" on their stems are buds, which are popularly called bulbs. With their help, in the wild, bulbous lilies reproduce independently: while ripening, the bud-bulb falls to the ground, takes root and germinates, if, of course, conditions suit it. With varietals you will have to "tinker" a little. I collect buds on my tiger favorites until the end of August. Usually they do not fall to the ground, but lie quietly at the base of the leaf, like in a cradle - just tilt the stem and fill the tray (cup) with them.

      Often there are even rudiments of roots on the bottoms of the largest ones. Immediately I sow these "seeds" -bubbles on the spreading bed in baskets for bulbous with loose nutrient soil at a distance of 1 - 2 cm from each other. Sprinkle with a layer of soil about 2-3 cm, water. After a couple of weeks, the first shoots appear (usually one leaf). In the warm autumn I water the "kids" and weed them, for the winter I cover them with a layer of fallen leaves.

      The next year they grow in the same basket, then I plant them (in August) in separate rows at a distance of 5-10 cm from each other, I grow for another 1 - 2 years. And then you can define permanent places. Lilies from bulbs bloom 3-4 years after planting - depending on conditions and care.

    Lily bulbs were proposed with small purple turban-shaped flowers and similar burgundy, but much larger. Are they planted in areas well lit by the sun, like other lilies?

      - Most likely, you have a locust (with lilac flowers) - the main lily of the garden group of lilies called Martagon, or Curly (Martagon Hybrids). And the second is one of the hybrids. These lilies are durable and winter hardy. The preferred planting time is early September. It is better to keep them now sprinkled with slightly moist peat at +5 degrees. To plant - immediately to a permanent place, since they do not like transplanting.

      For a year or two, lilies grow roots, "sulk" and do not bloom. Locust may not appear at all on the soil surface the next year after planting.
      All Martagon lilies do not like bright sun and prefer to grow under the cover of bushes or in the light shade of deciduous trees, where it is cool and damp. Suitable for gardens in a free, rustic style, and if they have settled where, they will be able to compete with neighbors for a place.

      They like light, loose, rich in organic matter and deeply cultivated soil. The saranka is extremely picky about the acidity of the soil, and the hybrids are more capricious - straight ones still grow on acidic soils, and complex ones prefer alkaline ones. On the sour, they look frail, turn yellow early and easily get sick. Therefore, they do not need to be mulched with sawdust and peat, but preferably with leaves with the addition of ash.

    Lilies look very impressive in the flower garden, if you choose the right neighbors. I plant lilies by 3-5 pieces. And next to I place gypsophila, veronica, chamomile, hosts or bells. It must be borne in mind that lilies have a strong aroma. So that the smells do not mix, you should not plant phlox or other fragrant flowers next to these plants.

    One of the most striking discoveries of recent years for me is chalm-shaped lilies with drooping petals.

    Such are in many groups, but the most exotic, in my opinion, are chlamoid-shaped hybrids. The favorite here is the variety Black Beauty, which feels great in the gardens. Also in our conditions, the variety of Scheherazade, Miss Fairy, Anastasia are remarkably growing.

    Chalmoid hybrids are better to grow in acidic soil, well seasoned with vermicompost and coniferous fallace.

    In the autumn, a neighbor shared with me lily bulbs. I landed them on the bed. When now to expect flowering?

      You did not indicate the kind of lily from which you got the bulbs. In many species and hybrids of lilies, bulbs are formed on the stems, for example, in the bulbous lily, Sargent, tiger, etc. When the lily fades, you can collect the bulbs - at this time they begin to separate easily and crumble to the ground. Buns of hardy species and varieties are planted on beds (into a furrow to a depth of 5 cm) and are well covered in winter. Muffins of tender lilies are sown in boxes that are stored in greenhouses well covered.
      Lilies, grown from bulbots, blossom in two or three years.

    In the garden, my mother always grew tiger lilies - plants with orange flowers. Although now I doubt it: is it a lily? And all because she went to her friend's cottage, where she showed me her daylilies. Very much like mother's lilies. So what is the difference between lilies and daylilies?

    • OOO "Sad"

      Lilies and daylilies with their significant, at first glance, external similarity are completely different plants belonging to different families of the monocotyledonous class. All species (varieties) of lilies belong to the lily family, daylilies are representatives of the subfamily of the daylily family of the xanthorrhoea (asphodel family). Lilies are more common. Found in all natural areas of the Northern Hemisphere. Daylilies only in Eurasia. The flowers of both lilies and daylilies have 6 petals each, but in lilies they are free, and in daylilies fused at the base (funnel-shaped flower).

      Liliae form rhizomes, bulbs and corms, which is not characteristic of the lily flowers, in which the underground organs are represented by cord-like, thickened roots, sometimes forming stolons. When cultivated, the lilylik are more unpretentious and frost-resistant. Cultivated species with a huge variety of varieties, of course, more in lily. However, in recent years, daylilies have become more and more popular in orchards and gardens.

    Lilies always look great - both in a single bouquet and in combination with gypsophila, asparagus, etc. But not all flower growers know that the quality of corms, as well as flowering in the next season, directly depends on the length of peduncles that remain when the lilies are cut.

    The less we leave the "penechki" from the total length of the shoot, the less chance for the plant to accumulate nutrients for the bulb by the winter, which means that the flowering will be weaker next year. Thus, you need to choose: admire the lilies in the garden or get a bouquet of stunning beauty and put up with the unimportant flowering in the next season.

    I believe that the lily is the queen of flowers. I grow more than 50 varieties of this magnificent flower, but Asian, OT, LA and LO hybrids feel the best in our climate. I love hybrids - they have powerful, large bushes, flowers of enormous size.

    I grow lilies in open places, but a slight shadow will not hurt them. I choose those areas where the snow comes off faster. If the soil is heavy, I make peat, humus, sand.
    Bulbs planted in both autumn and spring. Before boarding, I scan the decayed
    flakes, shorten too long roots, leaving at least 4 cm, then pickle the bulbs in a 0,2% fungicide solution. Depth of planting depends on the size of the bulb - small closer to the surface of the earth, large deeper. After planting, I mulch peat, humus.

    Leaving consists in maintaining the soil in a wet state and making fertilizing, and I have simple fertilizing - ash. My lilies bloom from mid-June to late July. And what a fragrance stands in the garden - just heavenly pleasure!
