Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis) are among the most fragrant of plants with their traditional strong but delicate scent. They’ve always been favourite plants to lighten up shady gardens but they also make fabulous indoor scented plants.

 

Indoor planting

Plant the Lily of the Valley ‘pips’ into good moisture retentive compost in a shallow decorative container indoors; a wicker basket or shallow terracotta trough is ideal.

Keep them warm and moist and they’ll send up delicate spikes of scented white bells.

Once they have delighted indoors, you can plant them out in the garden to naturalise.

Outdoor planting

Plant the rhizomes in moist, humus-rich soil min 2-3 cm deep, spreading the roots.  Once they are well rooted they will spread by means of the underground rhizomes.

They are an excellent ground cover that lasts until frost sets  in. They will form large clumps that need almost no care and live for many years.

Lily of the Valley grow best in a moist shaded site, thriving in even deep shade.

They’ll come back into flower every year and once established they’ll spread into glorious carpets of spring scent and colour.

They can be divided and replanted between September -November
