Me and my experiments, the planting medium is a layer of rice husk charcoal.

You can plant them any time you get them.

Yesterday i visited pride seeds and bought two more oriental lilies, they were largest in size i have come across in few years. In fact, i was lucky to find a lilium bulb so large that it had 2 flowering shoots, something i have never come across. Lets hope they flower good.
