  • How many bulbs per pot

    I have several Oriental lily bulbs to plant (40) and was thinking of using MFBs, for them, so how many bulbs could be grown in these pots, and as I am going to sink the pots into the ground would it be better to remove the bottom of the pots?
    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    I would suggest 5-6 per pot and I wouldn't remove the bottoms.

      Rary, will you be leaving the pots outdoors all the year round?
      I usually bring my pots of Lily bulbs under cover during the winter.
      I have 4 per pot.

      And when your back stops aching,
      And your hands begin to harden.
      You will find yourself a partner,
      In the glory of the garden.
