How Do You Start a Lily From a Seed?

Before you start, make sure you have a good potting soil. Clay pots are ideal for the soil, as it holds in moisture and helps the plants grow well.
Start by planting your bulb in a pot that is at least twice as large as the size of the bulb itself. When first planting, fill up your pot with enough soil to cover the bottom of the bulb so that it is submerged in water. Let this sit for 2-3 weeks before adding more soil to your pot until about half an inch of soil remains on top of the bulbs’ stem. Remove any dead leaves or roots that are present and keep your new plants moist until they start to sprout new leaves and flowers.
When your lily starts blooming, enjoy your beautiful flowers!

My name is Lily Reed, and this blog is about.... lilies!
Yes, I know. It's a true coincidence, but not really. My mother really loves this flower; she named me after him!
My mother started growing lilies when she was pregnant with me after the doctor told her not to move from the bed when she was 6 months pregnant. So it's been a special bond for us.
