Product Description

Ideal in light or even full shade, lily-of-the-valley is blessed with masses of tiny white bell-shaped flowers that possess a sweet, intoxicating scent in late spring. Rising up to 20cm on arching stems, which contrast spectacularly with its clumps of dark green foliage, this hardy perennial is native to alpine meadows and does best in moist soil

A cottage garden staple, the perfumed bell-flowers of Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis) open in April and May and are a welcome addition to any border or patio 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. It's ideal for brightening up a shady border or will spread happily to make a perfumed carpet of colour under trees and shrubs.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Did you know that in France on 1st May, bunches of Lily of the Valley are sold as a good luck charm or love token - so why not grow it in your garden for year-round good fortune!

Supplied as 3 x plants in 9cm pots, ready for immediate planting.  Plants are dormant from September to March and are sent out without leaves.

Plant Information

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 Guide

  • Despite having a temperamental reputation, lily of the valley is easy to grow if you buy it ready potted in spring.
  • 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.
