Product Information

Lilies are without doubt one of the most striking and beautiful summer flowers, and the new and highly desirable Oriental Lily, ‘Big News’ is no exception. Boasting huge, extravagant blooms that are the most flawless, purest white with an incredibly rich, heady perfume, this is truly magnificent!

The elegant, 20cm long white buds burst open into upward-facing, perfectly formed blooms that reach 30cm in diameter with gently arching, wavy petals. Stunning as cut flowers, making for bold, dramatic indoors displays, they also look fabulously decadent when grown in groups in large pots, and of course, they’re perfectly at home in your beds and borders. Wherever you plant ‘Big News’ it’ll be impossible to miss.

Planted in spring or autumn, they’ll return every year, bigger and better, and so easy to grow and care for, especially considering the amazing display that they give.

Supplied as a collection of 20 bulbs ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

  • Give lilies a good mulch to keep the root cool and keep well-watered when in full growth.

Care Information

  • Lily bulbs can be planted from autumn right through to the summer and are happy planted both straight into the ground or into containers.
  • We supply lots of different varieties so be sure to check the bag they come in for any specific planting instructions.
  • In general lilies are ever so easy to grow and with a sunny spot, frequent watering keeping soil moist (not wet) and a little high potassium fertilizer, you’ll get some fantastic displays.
  • Plant in sun or light shade, where they won’t be disturbed.
  • Dig a hole for each group at least 8in/20cm deep or 3 x the size of the bulb. Spread a 2in/5cm layer of grit all over the bottom to help drainage. Place your bulb onto the gravel and back-fill with soil.
  • Lilies prefer well-drained soil, so on heavy, clay soils which can be too wet, you can grow your lilies in pots, which can then be dropped into borders where you want flowers.
  • After the lily blooms, you can also remove just the flower. Do NOT remove leaves until they have died down and turned brown.
