Product Information

Lily of the Valley is blessed with masses of tiny pale pink, bell-shaped flowers that possess a sweet and intoxicating scent in late spring.

Rising up to 20cm on arching stems, which contrast spectacularly with clumps of dark green foliage, this hardy perennial will perform best in moist soil.

A cottage garden staple, the perfumed bell-flowers of Lily of the Valley, also known as Convallaria majalis, open in April and May and are a welcome addition to a border or pot.

Spreading via a network of underground roots, the spring shoots are referred to as 'pips' and sit just beneath the surface of the soil before bursting into bloom.

Perfect for dappled shade, Lily of the Valley makes a good groundcover plant, naturalising happily and brightening gloomy gardens, and even better, it makes a great cutflower to bring into your home.

This plant is ideal for shining light into a shaded border and will spread happily to make a perfumed carpet of colour under trees and shrubs.

Supplied as three established plants in 9cm pots, ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

Lily of the Valley does best when grown on in a pot before planting out into the garden from May - it dislikes being planted directly into cold, wet soil.

Care Information

  • Despite having a temperamental reputation, Lily of the Valley is easy to grow.
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the roots.
  • Spread out any underground stems and cover with just a couple of inches of the planting mixture.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Mulch well with leafmould or well-rotted compost.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.
  • If you find that flowering is poor, an occasional dose of high-potash organic liquid feed may help.
