    Frequently Asked Questions

    Spring is the best time to plant Scheherazade lilies because it allows them to establish their root systems before the summer heat arrives. These lilies prefer well-drained soil and cool, moist conditions, which are more common in the spring. Additionally, planting in the spring gives the bulbs ample time to develop and mature before the onset of winter. This ensures that they are strong and healthy enough to withstand the cold weather and bloom beautifully the following year.

    It is also possible to plant Scheherazade lilies in the fall, specifically in September or October. This timing allows the bulbs to establish their roots before the ground freezes in winter. Planting in the fall also gives the lilies a head start on growth in the following spring.

    To plant Scheherazade lilies, select a sunny or partially shaded location with well-draining soil. Plant the bulbs in the spring or fall, about 6-8 inches deep and 12-18 inches apart. Add compost or bulb fertilizer to the planting hole to provide nutrients for the bulbs.

    Water the bulbs after planting and keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. In the spring, as the plants emerge, provide support for the stems to prevent bending or breaking. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage more blooms and allow the foliage to die back naturally before removing it. With proper care, Scheherazade lilies will bloom reliably year after year.

    Scheherazade lilies are hardy bulbs that can survive winter temperatures in USDA zones 3-9. However, they may benefit from a layer of mulch to protect them from extreme cold.

    If you live in a zone where the ground freezes deeply, it's best to dig up the bulbs after the foliage dies back in the fall and store them in a cool, dry place until the following spring. In warmer zones, you can leave the bulbs in the ground, but it's still a good idea to cover them with a layer of mulch for extra protection.

    The best fertilizer for Scheherazade lilies is a slow-release, balanced fertilizer with an NPK ratio of 10-10-10 or 5-10-10. It is important to apply the fertilizer in early spring, just as the lilies start to emerge from the ground, and again after blooming has finished.

    Avoid using high-nitrogen fertilizers as they can cause excessive foliage growth at the expense of flower production. Additionally, fertilizers with too much phosphorus can lead to salt buildup in the soil, which can damage the lilies. Always follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and water thoroughly after application.
