The Trumpet Lily longiflorum should grow in loose, humus-rich soil. You can improve the soil by adding compost and cow manure pellets.

The Trumpet Lily longiflorum can be planted in a pot
Due to its strong flower stems, the Trumpet Lily longiflorum grows very well in flower pots and planters. You can fill the entire pot with these beautiful lilies. Plant the bulbs approximately 10 cm apart from each other. Alternatively, you can create a special combination with other lily bulbs and the much lower growing aster (Callistephus).
Add plant food mixed with water regularly during the flowering of Trumpet Lily longiflorum. Lilies can suffer from the lily beetle which is bright red in colour, the grubs are yellow. To prevent them from eating the leaves and other arterial parts of the lily, remove the beetles, eggs or grubs and destroy them. During winter, cover the bulbs with a layer of leaves to protect them from severe frost. Lilies grown in pots can be overwintered in a frost-free area.
Lilies in the right spot
The Trumpet Lily longiflorum loves to face the warm sun, but it is important to keep their 'feet' cool. For this to be achieved, plant low growing plants around the lilies to protect the soil. Don't place your pot of lilies in complete sunshine! Choose a sheltered spot with sufficient day time sun.
