Lily seed right on schedule

Lily seeds in their podsLilies are marvellously predictable. Their seed pods ripen and split a day or two either side of mid October. They’re metronomically reliable.

I’m passionate about lilies. I’ve bred some of the varieties in my garden myself, and it’s a thrill to see them thriving. There is no flower more dignified, beautiful and elegant.

    My lily grows in a rather weird place – in a crack in the front steps! What amazes me about Lilies is the number of seeds they produce. Fannnnntastic 🙂

    You’ve bred some of your own varieties? I’m impressed and jealous. I wish I could say the same about anything.

    Can’t say as I’m a huge flower grower but Lillie’s are one of my favourite flowers…along with orchids!!
