The multi purpose of Lily Looks


Lily Looks make excellent house and garden plants. You can enjoy your plant in your home and after it is bloomed out you can plant it in your garden. Take the outer pot off and plant about 10 cm deep. Make sure your plant stays humid. Your plant will go in dormancy (dies back) in fall and will produce even bigger and better flowers the next summer.

Lily Looks is also very suitable to enjoy on your deck or garden. They grow easy and the flowers last a long time. If you want to over-winter your patio pot it is important to store the plant frost free. Store your plants in a cool and dry area. You can put these plants back on your deck in spring after the last frost. Make sure you water regularly when the plant goes back outside.

There are two times of the year you can plant Lily bulbs :

- In fall before the frost gets into the ground. Plant bulbs 10 cm deep.
- In spring after the last frost. Plant the bulbs 10 cm deep. It is important to keep the soil humid.

You can plant lilies in fall or spring. Lilies will bloom in early summer.

Care

Taking care of potted lilies does not require a ‘green thumb’. In fact, it is a rather easy flower to nurse. Some extra care, attention and the right nursing will ensure that the lily will bloom for 2 to 4 weeks, in order for you to optimally enjoy this spectacular flower.

Water them approx. 2 times a week and keep the soil slightly moist. Place the potted lily in a bright, sunny spot. However, avoid placing them in direct sunlight.Ideal temperatures for potted lilies to grow are between 15 and 20 °C.


Remove the spent flowers to encourage longer blooms and emphasize new flowers.
 

Pollen

The potted lily is not only known for her extraordinary flowers. The pollen produced by the stampers are another characteristic of the lily, one which is often regarded as ‘annoying’. Pollen is known to leave unpleasant stains on clothing and other fabrics when in direct contact. However, this should not prevent you from taking a potted lily home as this ‘problem’ is easily solved.

Should pollen stain your clothes, then carefully shake out the piece of clothing. When the fabric has only been recently stained, the vacuum cleaner will easily remove the pollen from your clothing. Without a brush, carefully blot the stain with a rag, and do not rub.

The best way to take care of a pollen stain is to allow mother nature to help. Leave the piece of clothing outside in the sun and the stain will vanish in no time.

Should you not want to take this risk at all, opt then for a non-pollen potted lily. We have Tiny Double You in our assortment. This ‘full double flower' hybrid is a big breakthrough in the development of bringing on a new generation of liliums and will produce many spectacular selections in the near future.
