    In each collection you will receive 1 bulb each of:

    Lilium 'Arabian Night'
    Masses of nodding flowers, each with recurved burgundy-orange petals that are heavily freckled, dangle enticingly from the uptight stems in early to midsummer. Their vibrant colour and exotic appearance creates a very striking display, and their undemanding nature means they can be used in most soils and are even tolerant of light shade. Grows to 150cm high.

    Lilium 'Apricot Fudge'
    The flowers of this unusual lily look quite rose-like, having two rows of shorter, more rounded petals, but they still retaining the cluster of prominent stamens that is typical of most of the group. The colouring is very pretty too, being a warm blend of apricot and fudge, and this makes it perfect for borders with a hot colour scheme - as well as offering a lively contrast to rich purple and plum. Also, the flowers have a delicious perfume and will make long-lived additions to the vase. Grows to 70cm high.

    Lilium 'Cavoli'
    The sumptuous colouring of 'Cavoli' really makes it a stand-out addition to the garden, while its compact habit (without skimping on the generous size of the flowers), makes it a must for patio pots. An Asiatic hybrid, the unscented flowers are mainly outward to upward facing so really put on a great display. Grows to 40cm high.

  • Garden care: Lilies can be planted at any time from early autumn, to mid-spring. Planting in autumn often helps them settle in and become better established before they start to put on their new spring growth, but spring planting is a better option if your soil is heavy and wet during winter. Choose a sunny spot, preferably where the plant receives a little light shade at its base, and plant each bulb 15-20cm deep in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Space them between 15 - 30cm intervals and provide support before the flowers appear. Deadhead the faded blooms promptly and cut the dead stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.

Containment, rather than complete eradication, is the key to pest management in an organic garden. A certain number of pests have to be tolerated because they are food for the predators – kill all the pests and there is nothing for the predators to eat. T

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
