GROWING LILY - ADVICE AND FEEDBACK
I love my land very much, I grow flowers, vegetables, fruits on it. I have many flowers, they decorate my life. You go out into the garden, admire the blossoming buds, the fruits ripening on the branches, and rejoice in this wonderful world.
I want to talk about one of my favorite flowers - lilies. They are majestic, graceful and /I ! graceful. This is beauty and charm. I plant a lot of lilies every year, they do not require complex care. These are very hardy plants, easily tolerate drought, grow well on poor soils. They need water
very little. It is impossible only that the water stagnates, otherwise the roots may rot. Before planting, I always soak the bulbs for two hours in a pink solution of potassium permanganate. The bulbs are thus disinfected and saturated with water, and then easily rooted. I plant them in light sandy soil rich in organic matter. For good plant development and flowering, the soil must be breathable. To prevent damage to the bulbs by rot, I do not use fresh manure, I flavor the soil only with peat and rotted compost. If the soil is heavy, add sand. I plant the bulbs in rows, not very deep, about 10 cm.
Lilies can be planted at any time of the year, except for winter. We must not forget about the transplant. During the summer, many children form on the bulb. I take them off the mother bulb and plant them separately for growing. When transplanting, I inspect the bulbs so that they are healthy, without signs of disease. Tubular hybrids can grow in one place for many years. But in order to admire the luxurious flowering, you need to feed them. I feed my lilies with complex mineral fertilizers.
I grow hardy varieties. Asian lilies are very beautiful, their color can be so different, besides, all these stripes, dots, strokes, different flower shapes. Just delight!
I love LA hybrids for large flowers collected in a huge bouquet. Indeed, on one inflorescence there can be 7-9 large flowers of a bright pure color.
Tiger lily with large turban-shaped flowers of white, pink, lemon color is a real beauty.
Every year there are more and more interspecific hybrids. And this is such a beauty from which it is impossible to take your eyes off, and also, when the lilies bloom, the garden is filled with the most delicate aroma! Well, how not to love them?!
