Lily is a flowering plant that is important to many cultures and literature in a great part of the world. It belongs to the old garden flowers. Lily is used for planting in parks or as a cut flower. Some species, due to their strong odor cannot be grown indoors. A bulb, leaf and flower of White Lily have healing qualities. Lilies prefer to grow in cool, shady places, while their flowers develop in the heat of the sun. You need to choose a place that is bright and sunny, but sheltered from the hot afternoon sun. Land should be humus and with good drainage. Bulbs require some humidity, but the excess of moisture bothers them and there is a danger of them rotting. Heavy loam soil must be improved with drainage layer of gravel and sand below the plantation. Due to the improvement of land there should be added a mature compost and organic fertilizer with slow action. Lilies should always be planted in groups of at least 3-5 pieces. They are planted in the fall or early spring. The distance of 25-45 cm between the plants is required depending on the type. They should be planted at a depth of six inches, but it depends on the species, because the high ones should be planted a little deeper. They grow from 40 – 80 cm and bloom from May to July (and it depends on the type).
