Sound the trumpets. Lilies are notorious for their giant, flared flowers and intoxicating fragrance. Plant your bulbs in a container or a garden border in autumn, so they’ll flourish and add drama come the summer. There are two main types: Oriental lilies have very large, pink flowers, a super strong perfume and go nuts for acidic soil. Asiatic lilies have smaller unscented blooms, but they come in a wider variety of colours and are generally a tad easier to grow. Plant these bee-friendly bulbs on your balcony, by your front door, in patio pots or in beds to add a touch of theatricality to your outdoor space.
