Fireball lily

This would be my first time growing fireball lily, I have the bulbs and want to grow them outside border, would I start them of in pot in glasshouse or start them of outside, when in glasshouse or when outside.

  • Do you have a proper name for your lilly Jason ?
    It's a bit early yet so best bet would be in a pot in the GH - let it get some growth and then acclimatise to outside if that is where you want to plant it.

    Your bulb is probably S.multiflorus or one of its hybrids ; Phillipas advice is good .Just provide a bright position outside and a humus rich soil .

    Scadoxus.

    Found in tropical Africa.
    I think it is unlikely that they will survive in a UK border.
