Lily of the Valley is a much-loved flower full of fragrance for indoors and out. Enjoy the wonderful and unique scent of this popular perennial.

Grow your ready-to-plant 'pips' indoors in a shallow container for a beautiful display then, after flowering, simply replant them in any part of your garden to naturalise. 

Once established this hardy perennial will give you sweet-smelling carpets of flowers in shady areas of your garden for years to come. 

 

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
