Letís avoid watering the The Lily excessively, always leaving the soil dry for a few days between one watering and the other, therefore letís irrigate the substratum deeply every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water . We suggest not to exceed with the waterings: if the soil remains damp too long, it can favour the development of rotten in the bulbs.
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Letís favour soft soils, with an elevated drainage.
