    Hi gardenlady, Most lillies like slightly acidic soils but I grow mine in neutral soil and they do fine.  I'm no expert but I think that they like good soil so I'd add some organic compost when you plant them.

    Hi from Kingswinford in the West Midlands

    Just about to plant some I bought recently- first time I've tried so will add some good soil and hope the lily beetles don't kill them.Saw a programme about them recently and they sounded easy to grow.
