Growing Lillies in a container

One of the best ways to add scent and colour to you garden is by having summer flowering bulbs and the most majestic are the Lilies.

The great thing about growing Lilies this way is you can give them perfect conditions and they can be used to fill gaps in the flower borders by simply placing sinking the pots of lillies into the ground were you want instant effect

It also means that you can position them were there scent will be most  appreciated

 

if you would like a truly dramatic effect then use the Bulb Lasagna method and plant your lillies in layers in a large pot
