    In each collection you will receive the following:

    1 × Lilium 'Cavoli''
    The sumptuous colouring of 'Cavoli' really makes it a stand-out addition to the garden, while its compact habit (without skimping on the generous size of the flowers), makes it a must for patio pots. An Asiatic hybrid, the unscented flowers are mainly outward to upward facing so really put on a great display. Grows to 40cm.

    1 × Lilium 'Forever Marjolein'
    The petals of this gorgeous lily are a rich blend of pink and apricot, so the overall effect is quite warm and tropical. An Asiatic hybrid, it will jazz up a summer planting scheme in the border, and it also looks impressive when potted up. Grows to 90cm.

    1 × Lilium 'Pink Perfection'
    A beautiful lily with stout stems that bear large, scented, slightly nodding, trumpet-shaped flowers that are purple-pink with bright orange anthers. Perfect for the back of a sunny border where they can easily reach 2m (6ft) tall. Universally loved for their big showy flowers, produced in midsummer, these lilies make excellent cut flowers. Grows to 200cm.

  • Garden care: Lilies can be planted at any time from early autumn to mid-spring. Planting in autumn often helps them settle in and become better established before they start to put on their new spring growth, but spring planting is a better option if your soil is heavy and wet during winter. Choose a sunny spot, preferably where the plant receives a little light shade at its base, and plant each bulb 15-20cm deep in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Space them at 15-30cm intervals and provide support before the flowers appear. Deadhead the faded blooms promptly and cut the dead stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.
