    In each collection you will receive the following:

    1 × Lilium regale 'Album'
    An incredibly popular variety with large, almost pure white trumpets with orange anthers. This is a form of Lilium regale, which does not have the pink flush to the outside of the petals, but it has retained every ounce of the sumptuously strong scent of its parent. A great choice for white borders, and looks spectacular at night when the flowers really seem to glow. Grows to 150cm.

    1 × Lilium regale
    One of the most popular varieties of lily, and it's not hard to see why. The huge trumpet-shaped white flowers are flushed with pink, smell divine and provide great wafts of scent throughout the garden when they are open. Alternatively bring them inside as cut flowers and they will fill your home with their heady perfume. Lilies are one of the all-time favourite summer-flowering bulbs as they will look superb in any garden scheme. Grows to 150cm.

    1 × Lilium 'White Twinkle'
    A gorgeous lily that opens from slender green buds to gently curving, creamy- white petals, that have a smattering of maroon spots towards their base. Often scented, the flowers look wonderful in the summer border, but can also be cut for the vase. Grows to 100cm.

  • 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.
