How to grow lilies
Select the bulbs. Decide on a variety of colors and proceed to the choice of planting material. Bulbliliesshould be large and strong, well-colored (for some varieties). The dense structure of the bulb should not contain signs of rot. Bulbs with sprouted long shoots are also better not to acquire - the sprout should be whole and only look out of the bulb.
Select a suitable site. The soil should be well drained, as the roots of flowers quickly rot when water stagnates. Choose open sunny areas with little shade, no trees and evenly moistened ground.
Prepare the primer. Growliliesbetter on fertile, nutrient soils, so before planting fertilize the area with manure or humus. The soil should pass moisture well, so mix the dense earth with sand - so the water will not stagnate. Mineral fertilizers in the form of nitrate, superphosphate and potassium salt will increase the nutritional value of the soil, you can add a little ash.
Plant bulbs.Plant the bulbs to a depth of about 10 centimeters. Top with straw or dry grass. Provide conditions for growth.
Waterliliesregularly under the root, trying not to get water on the leaves. Mulch planting in order to preserve moisture without loosening the soil (so as not to damage the shoots). Fertilize the soil regularly (diluted in water with humus, mineral complexes), especially not fertile.
