Lily pollen

If you have a problem with pollen falling everywhere in the house, try protecting the petals with a paper ring and spray the pollen with hair spray. Doesn't seem to effect the perfume of the lilies but up to press keeps the petals clean.


  • Thanks for that 1Runnybeak1
  • Can I please add that any part of the lily is fatal to cats if eaten!

    I always cut them off right from the start, some cats can die from brushing past the pollen and licking their fur..

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • is that any type of lily or are they all deadly for cats ?

  • I believe there are some Lillies being sold as pollen free............I seem to recall seeing them in some of the never ending catalogues which pour thru my door.  Maybe T&M ?

    It doesn't bother me as I love Lillies ( pollen and all ) but it may be worth looking around if you are worried about the stains, poison or WHY.
