There are over 3,000 different varieties of lilies, and more and more every year. There are lilies not only in all colors of the rainbow, but also in the most unimaginable shades. They also differ in height, from small (30 cm) to giants (2 meters). The most common in Russia are Asian hybrids. Their bulbs do not need to be dug up for the winter.

When caring for lilies, remember - they do not tolerate excess moisture and prefer lighted ventilated places, soils are loose and fertile, but they do not tolerate too calcareous or excessively acidic soils. They are planted in open areas or under trees. Feed lilies are better with mullein (1:10) and ash.

Diseases. Sometimes lilies are affected by gray rot, in which case they need to be treated with 0.2 percent foundationazole. In general, they rarely get sick. However, when cutting flowers, do not remove more than a third of the leaves, otherwise flowering may stop. Bulbs are best planted in early June or autumn. And repot - even during flowering. 3 years after planting, the bulb forms a nest that must be divided. Lilies are combined with almost all perennials and annuals.
