    Lilium martagon
    Native to Swiss mountain meadows, this lily is easily grown in Britain. In June and July, tall stems play host to numerous small, purple, spotted turkscap lilies above whorls of dark green leaves. The flowers are highly scented, although it's not the most pleasant smell. This lily does best among shrubs or in woodland where it should be left to naturalise. Grows to 150cm high.

    Lilium martagon '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 'Orange Marmalade'
    Slender arching petals form gracefully nodding flowers throughout the early part of summer. Their vibrant and intense colouring makes them and ideal choice for a hot themed border where they mix easily with shades of red and yellow. Grows to 150cm 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
