I ended up with so many pots of lilies in the conservatory that the scent got overpowering.
A number of pots therefore found their way into the house! This environment is cooler than the conservatory (during the summer months) and so the blooms last longer.
I purchased a large quantity of bulbs from Thompson & Morgan at sale prices and had fun seeing how they turned out. Some grew faster than others, some were taller than others, some had more perfume than others, and of course they came in all sorts of different colours. Not a single bulb failed to delight!
