Her bulbs are planted to a depth of no more than 3 cm in August and by September a rosette of leaves appears, from which after winter a flowering stem will appear. After the lily in June ottsvette it and should be transplanted, pre-cut off the stems.

I love lilies. Mother Lily called.

Digging up the plants should be done carefully so as not to damage the fragile sprout and, trying not to shake off the ground from the roots, place it in a new hole. If the dredged plants have small shoots, the lily should be instilled in a new place at the same level as before, not too deep. But if at the time of transplantation the shoots reached more than 15 cm, it is better to plant them, placing them horizontally in the hole, leaving only the top of the plant above the soil surface. Subsequently, babies are formed on the stem in the ground, from which it will be possible to grow full-fledged bulbs.

Lily transplantation in spring

It is possible to replant lilies both in the fall, and in the spring. But if the summer was dry, the lily bulbs do not have time to ripen, and the autumn transplant can be stressful for the plants, then they root harder, the adaptation period increases, and they painfully tolerate wintering in the open ground.

The distance between the bushes should be dictated by common sense and experience. The closer you plant - the sooner you have to sit down. Plus, in some species, huge caps of colors, reaching half a meter in diameter. If such lilies are planted close - it will simply be ugly. For "ordinary" lilies, the average distance between bushes is 20-30 cm.

Honestly, I don’t feel the need to apply actions that wander from one article to another, such as:

By the beginning and middle of September, usually the above-ground part has already done its work, and the lilies are actively preparing for winter. Including, by the way, increase the root system. But unlike the spring buildup, the roots are now growing with a reserve for the next year, that is, this year they have mostly fulfilled their task. Now we will deal with transplant.

Usually lilies after planting grow well in one place for 4-5 years, without requiring special care (rare feeding and mulching - do not count! & # 128521). But gradually they increase quantitatively, and qualitatively - on the contrary, worsen. Because they become trite closely. Plants are getting lower, thinner, flowers are smaller and sadder ... What to do - it's time to plant them!

When and how to replant lilies

Onions need to be planted in the warm, sun-warmed earth, that is, not in the first days of March, when the sun was just beginning to warm, but somewhere in the middle-end of this month, and maybe even in early April. It already depends on your weather conditions, because somewhere spring comes very early, and somewhere it lingers a little.

Lilies are perennial plants, but for them to delight you with their flowers, they must be replanted. How often you need to replant lilies depends on their variety, but on average they need to be replanted every three years. Some varieties, such as American hybrids, can be transplanted much less frequently - once every ten years, and some, for example, Asian hybrids, are generally desirable to replant annually. That is, it all depends on the variety and, accordingly, the needs of the lily.Lily transplants

Terms of transplantation need to understand the season of the year and the life cycle of lilies. If we take into account the growth and development of the lily, then it is necessary to transplant, or rather, plant the accumulated bulbs near the mother in 2-3 years. It depends on the intensity of vegetative propagation of a particular variety. Such varieties of Asian hybrids come across that every year the bulb divides into 2-3. Many bulbs nearby worsen growing conditions, so the young should be transplanted to a new place.

Planting overgrown lilies!

The most basic lily transplant is early autumn. The first decade of August is best suited for digging, dividing and transplanting four and five year old lilies. They can be transplanted more often, after 2-3 years. But this should be done only if the bulbs suffer from thrips - it is a pest that eats the scales of the bulbs. If the lilies are affected by gray mold, then the site is better to change.

If you dug a lily bush that has not been transplanted for 2-3 years, it should consist of several bulbs of different sizes. They should be divided one by one and put each in a separate well.

In the spring, along with a lump of earth, you can transplant an already established plant, ready for active growth.

Autumn transplant - about the timing and actions.

At this autumn transplant of lilies will be considered complete. Now it is possible to mumble with hay or with fallen leaves our plantings and wait for the summer, when beautiful lilies will delight us with lush and bright blooms.

Cut the roots to the very bottom,

❗ The author of the article deals with lilies in the Baltic climate, where there is a warm, long autumn. For those who live in the depths of the continent, including Siberia, the dates of lily transplantation are postponed to mid-August so that the onion has time to settle down before the frost! In the Moscow and Leningrad region, the transfer of lilies can also be practiced in late August - early September.

❗ What is interesting. The less frequent and fleeting care of lilies - the less they need to be transplanted. Because if they don’t particularly feed them and do nothing, then they don’t grow much. See only that weeds do not crush them at all.

Some are worried about the question: "Is it possible to replant a blooming lily?". So, with the majority of varieties such a trick will not work, but with Asian hybrids already mentioned at the beginning of the article it is easy. Lilies of this variety can be transplanted at any time, even in summer. The main thing is to carefully dig them up, so as not to damage anything, and after transplanting to a new place, water the plant thoroughly.

Next you should determine the time of transplanting lilies. So when can lilies be transplanted? You have two options - in the fall or spring. Again, in most cases, the variety of lilies will help you determine the terms of transplanting lilies. Somehow lilies more suitable spring transplant, and some autumn. Let's look at this issue in more detail.

- this is August or early September.

And it should be done about a month after flowering. It is possible and later, as the weather and time allows. I sometimes had to do this even in early November.

  • After flowering, it should take at least a month and a half to the moment of transplantation. During this time, the bulb will gain strength and become large and dense. For example, in good conditions, in early August, lilies of June flowering periods can be transplanted.
  • The main danger that threatens the lily sprouts transplanted in the spring is late frosts that can damage the plants. But even if you did not replant the lilies, they would still have to be protected from frost. Having learned about the approaching cooling, you need to water the beds, adding aepine ampoule for every 10 liters of water. Wet soil will protect the plants from frost, taking on all its severity, and epin will help lilies to endure a stressful situation after primorozkov.
  • It is best to prepare the beds under the lilies in the fall. Dedicated for lilia flower beds are deeply dug up, sand is introduced into the soil, which makes it looser, and if there is a possibility, needles or peat are added. If the soil has not been prepared since autumn, it is not too late to do this in spring, when the earth dries out sufficiently.

Soak / pickle the bulbs in karbofos, potassium permanganate and other beautiful and foul-smelling liquids,

In yellowed (even in those beginning to turn yellow) lilies, prune the stalks as short as you like. Usually leave hemp 10-15 centimeters, it is possible and less. If the lilies are green - then cut the tops is not necessary, but in this case, you need to damage the roots as little as possible. We take gloves more simply, yes a shovel, and having receded from a bush of 30 centimeters, deeply we hook an earthen room.

Here it is - a question that many people care about. For some reason. He never bothered me until I looked at what was being written "in interents." You imagine, it is often recommended to plant lilies in spring, when they, they say, actively grow the root system. It should be noted that the lilies that were transplanted in the spring often overtake in the development the lilies transplanted in the autumn, as the former did not »All winter in frozen ground. Although all this is quite controversial, because the autumn transplantation is quite convenient and many transplant their lilies precisely in the autumn, while the plants very well tolerate this whole process and bloom well. In general, the most convenient way is to try both ways of transplanting and then, on your own experience, understand which way is more convenient and better for your lilies.

Storage of dug bulbs.

In the fall, the onions are at rest, so it is during this period that they are most convenient to replant. Many growers prefer autumn transplantation.

Lilies do not have to repot each year. At one place they bloom 3-4 years in a row. Then the plant weakens, the bulbs go deep into the ground, and the lily can grow a flower. Therefore, it must be transplanted. It will be better for the plant if you transplant the lily to a new place, or you can simply change the ground beneath it.

Soil preparation for lily transplantation

At the same time with digging prepared furrows or holes for the planting of lilies. The depth of the furrows for embedding large bulbs is about 20 cm, and smaller ones - 15-10 cm. The bottom of the prepared holes is covered with wood ash, which will serve as a bactericidal agent, make the plants more resistant to diseases and strengthen them.

The dug onion should be planted as soon as possible - it is not the air that they dry and deteriorate. There is no protective shell like onions or tulips, lilies. And if for some reason you need to wait a little with planting - then put the onion in wet moss or sawdust, in extreme cases - wrap it in a wet newspaper or put it in a plastic bag.

  • ​Лучше всего грядки под лилии подготовить еще осенью. Выделенная под лилейные клумба глубоко перекапывается, в почву вносится песок, который делает ее более рыхлой, а если есть возможность, добавляется хвоя или торф. Если с осени почва не подготовлена, не поздно это сделать весной, когда земля достаточно просохнет.​

Spring Lily Transplant - Plant Magic

If I forget that when I plant, then I go to the store and see what is being sold there. Lilies are sold both in autumn in August and in spring. So you can replant them in the spring too. Another question is that it is better to do this until they start to grow. This year I sought them out on an overgrown, neglected bed in the grass and transplanted around the end of May-June. Nothing even bloomed.

Spring Transplant Benefits

The flower itself will tell you the time of transplantation: its leaves and trunk will wither. There are varieties that still bloom in August and, of course, it would be wrong to replant them in this state.

When to replace lilies?

Soil preparation for lily transplantation

At the same time with digging prepared furrows or holes for the planting of lilies. The depth of the furrows for embedding large bulbs is about 20 cm, and smaller ones - 15-10 cm.

When to replace lilies?

Be sure to cut the aboveground part (if it is green - why.)

In different species, and even in different varieties of lilies, the root system may be different. In some, after such digging, the bulbs are scattered just like potatoes, and they also need to be picked from the ground. For others, the root system is powerful and tightly covers an earthen room. There you will have to act with your hands, slowly shaking off the ground and freeing the large onion and the children around it. It also depends on the structure of the soil - it is obviously easier to separate the bulbs on the sand than on the loam.

How to plant lilies?

I just want to ask respected authors - why do you want to prevent the root system from actively growing? After all, if it is damaged, the lilies will bloom much later, and they will leave before winter without accumulating, after flowering, an adequate supply of food. Let us leave the root alone in the spring - let it grow for itself - this is our motto. And transplant-planting bulbs will fall!

So, all the information about when to replant lilies, you now know. The main thing is to study all the factors and decide which of the transplants - spring or autumn - is more suitable for your variety of lilies.

When can I replace lilies?

Look at your lilies that have been growing in one place for several years now. If you notice that last year there are fewer flowers, and this is even less, then this is a sign that it is time to replant the lilies. Decrease in flowering usually occurs already from the fourth year, and in the fifth or sixth year of the lily it is time to repot. You can do this in spring and autumn in September or October.

Have you noticed that in the flower markets lilies sell in bloom, all summer - in June and July? And take root well. Tubers with wet soil, as in a pot, in a plastic bag. And you always see what beauty you buy. Lilies are tenacious and unpretentious in terms of transplantation. But, of course, if in a businesslike manner, it is better in September-October.

The only condition for Siberia and the Central zone, which must be observed in time: do not replant at the end of September. In the southern regions of Russia, this can be done until mid-November.

Without a transplant grow 3-4 years in one place, a maximum of 5-6 years. Then, if not transplanted, then they bloom and shrink poorly.

Until the time when the sprouts appear above the ground, it makes no sense to replant the lilies - you still do not determine where they will sprout. Approximately at the end of April-May sprouts of lilies will appear, and they can be dug out. Tightening with a transplant is not worth it, as large plants take root harder in a new place.

If you want to keep the dug onion until spring - then it is best done in the form of a prikopannom in the cellar, where the temperature will be slightly above 0 degrees, or in the refrigerator, in a plastic bag with slightly moist moss or sawdust (well, you probably saw how the bulbs are sold lilies in stores) ...

Galina Skulkina

Well, if, let's say, your lilies are sick or some kind of small nit has attacked them - then it is possible in karbofos ... But if everything is in order with them - why is this. And the roots? Why cut the roots of a plant that has perennial roots. They do not die off in lilies every season, like garlic and onions, for example, but they grow all the time, sometimes faster, sometimes more slowly. If the lilies are sheltered for the winter or simply mumble well, so that the earth does not freeze through - then the roots slowly continue to grow throughout the winter.

❗ By the way. The deeper you plant the bulb, the more babies it gives. And the later blooms.

❗ Important! After the lily blooms, it should take at least a month, and preferably 1.5-2 months, for the bulb to recover and be ready for transplant!

Lilies - the flowers are beautiful but unpretentious, especially Asian. But from time to time, and they require that the gardener and even took up a shovel. This, of course, is about transplanting and seating.

Elena-Lilia

Such a transplant is very simple, much less troublesome than the spring one. The main thing is not to replace lilies later than the end of September. Of course, it all depends on weather conditions, because in some regions autumn comes a little earlier. In general, it is important to transplant the lilies before the first cold weather and carefully cover them for the winter from the cold weather so that the onions calmly take root in the new land, and they do not have the so-called stress.

It is best to replant in August, when the stalk of the lily is intact. But if brown spots are formed on the stem, it is better to replant it immediately. You should not use fresh manure for fertilizer and replace lilies preferably every year or a year.

Lily transplantation depends on the climatic conditions in your region, in some regions they can bloom in August, and in some regions lilies already fade. It is necessary to transplant lilies in the autumn while the temperature is above zero, since at low temperatures lilies do not survive well. The most favorable month for planting lilies is September. But in the spring lilies can also be planted, planting lilies should be already in the heated land, the month of May is suitable for planting lilies in the spring.

In central Russia they are transplanted in August-September, and in the southern regions in October.

If the planting of excavated plants will not be made today, the dug bulbs are poured with wetted sawdust or peat or sand, and stored in a dark cool place for up to 5 days.At one place, lilies can grow for a long time, but if tightened with a transplant, their flowers begin to grow shallow, the bushes become low, and shoots lose their ability to form flower buds. Optimal replanting lilies every 2-3 years, and if the bush has increased significantly in size in just one year, you can do it next year.Well, actually about the process of transplantation almost everything. There are two technical points left - the depth of planting and the distance between the bulbs. Depth can vary from 10 to 40 cm. On the sand and in warm places - we plant more deeply, on clay - higher. The minimum depth is 2 times the diameter of the adult bulb. Optimal - multiplied by 3-4 diameter.

It is not so easy to separate such twisted lumps of roots. But such lilies can be transplanted at any time, even in a flourishing state, only a lump of earth to save.

Like all decent bulbous plants, lilies after flowering are engaged in accumulating “deep into themselves”, that is, in the bulb, nutrients they need for a “spring start”. Therefore, I remind you that after flowering, the green above-ground parts are not cut until the very autumn, until they are naturally dry. Sometimes they do not dry up before frosts, do not worry - you can cut off after the first frost. But the seed boxes better break off immediately after the flower blossoms.

Lily transplant in summer

Sometimes there is a need to transplant lilies in the summer. Carry out the procedure by transfer: the onion is removed with a large earthen clod and planted in a pre-prepared hole. As a rule, transshipment lilies tolerate well. However, without urgent need it is better not to replant the lilies in summer: when the plant has a biological rhythm, negative consequences can be felt for several seasons.

Site preparation

Lilies are transplanted once every 3-4 years. Choose a bright, open area with fertile, drained and breathable soil. Some varieties, such as tubular hybrids or Asiatic lilies, can be comfortable both in the sun and in light penumbra, but not under the trees. Japanese, naughty, callous, reddish, gorgeous, golden, beautiful and carniola lilies prefer to grow in partial shade, and long-flowered, dwarf, monochromatic, pleasant, Dahurian, orange, Halkedonian and drooping lilies need plenty of sunlight.

Dig the area to the depth of the spade bayonet, remove the rhizomes of perennial weeds. For perekopki, add peat and coarse river sand to heavy soil, add 8 kg of compost or humus for each m² in podzolic soils, and 4 kg of compost for each m² in leached chernozem. If necessary, it is possible to add softwood and leaf soil to the top layer of soil. And mineral fertilizers - phosphate, potash and nitrogen - are applied to the soil of any composition. Do not use manure as a fertilizer!

As for the level of acidity, each species in this matter has its own preference: in areas with neutral soil, most of the lilies can be grown, but such species as Martagon, Regale, monochromatic, bulbous, kinky, umbrella, Tibetan and white lilies grow best on slightly alkaline soils, while David, Dahurian, Tiger, Maksimovic and Wilmott lilies prefer slightly acidified soils. Too acidic soil is neutralized with wood ash, chalk or limestone.

If the site is in a hollow where thawed or rainwater can stagnate, make flower beds raised by 15-20 cm.

Planting bulbs in open ground

When planting lilies, a scheme common to all bulbous plants is used: the bulb is placed at a depth equal to three of its diameters, that is, the thickness of the soil layer above the bulb with a diameter of 5 cm should be 10 cm. In heavy soils, the bulbs are planted at a slightly shallower depth, and in the lungs - on a little more than the scheme offers.

Yellow lilies on the plot

For medium-sized lilies, double-sided planting is used, when the bulbs are placed in a row at a distance of 15-20 cm, and between lines retain a distance of about 25 cm. For undersized lilies, it is better to use a three-line belt planting with an interval in the row of 10-15 cm and the same distance between lines. Single line planting suggests a distance between bulbs in the row of 5-10 cm, and between the lines - about half a meter.

Dig the holes of the desired depth according to your chosen scheme, pour the washed coarse sand mixed with wood ash into each mixture, plant the bulbs in this pillow, straighten their roots and lightly press them into the sand, fill the wells with soil, pour them, and when the water is completely absorbed, grumble the area with peat.

Lily care after planting

After the autumn planting, you have to prepare the site for wintering: before the onset of frost in the southern terrain, planting is covered with dry oak leaves, and in an area with more severe winters over the leaves, the site is additionally warmed with pine or spruce paws. Shelter removed in early spring, when the snow begins to melt.

Time for a lily transplant

There is a large variety of varieties of lily plants, but lilywater growers do not stop at what has been accomplished and embody the most unusual ideas into ideas. The following varieties are considered popular:

  • Russian (close to the usual conditions),
  • imported (Dutch).

There is an opinion that replant the plant preferably in spring or autumn. August is considered a more favorable and ideal time, because the stem is still holistic. When can you replace lilies?

Very delicately you need to dig up the onion and inspect from all sides. If it is clean, undamaged by rot or parasites, and the root system is healthy, then it can immediately be planted on the prepared area. Otherwise, the bulbs will have to be processed. It is recommended to wrap the bulbs in the forest moss - it will be a protection for them. And the roots will sprout freely.

Bulb species, after being transported to a different soil, are able to recover and rejuvenate, are able to be strong and begin to blossom again luxuriously. This happens only if all requirements are met. Thus, the question of transplanting arises before many growers, especially lovers of this culture. There is no concrete answer to it. Much depends on the type of plant, its general condition, climate conditions and the needs of lilium water.

In one place a flower can grow from about three to five years. It depends on the intensive formation of small bulbs. Asian and LA hybrids are rapidly increasing their layouts (babies), so they plant such species every three years. And in tubular hybrid varieties and Martagon lilies, reproduction occurs more slowly, and transplant them less often. This must be done not only in order to propagate the favorite variety. A significant amount of shoots takes the maximum strength and nutrients from the main mother plant. As a result, there is a small number of buds, and the flowers become rare and small. In this situation, they must inevitably be seated.

Transplant in the autumn

From time to time there is a need to transplant young lilies in the fall to another place. This is due to changes in the conditions of the site or flower beds, as well as if the flowers are unwell and sick.

The problems of transplantation must take into account the individual characteristics of each class. Early varieties of lilies and with medium flowering periods are much better adapted to the average Russian conditions.

The earliest species begin to bloom in late June, early July, and the average ones bloom in late August. By the period of the planned transplant, they can rest and stock up on forces for the new period. Autumn is August or September, the best time for a flower transplant. If you plan to transplant at a later time, then you need a long time to carefully monitor the weather conditions and temperature fluctuations.

If you have a late transplant - you need to worry about covering material for the winter so that the bulbs do not freeze. Such a transplant can cause delayed ripening of flower stalks in the next season. Late species, pleasing their bloom throughout September, should be left until spring. In mid-latitudes late autumn transplant is considered not very correct. In summer, only some varieties can be transplanted. It is important to prepare a way to transplant lilies in the fall to another place.

It is necessary to carefully prepare the territory where it will inhabit, and the main planting material. Lilies, self-grown, or taken from friends, will not always be able to grow in a new place. Если в магазинах или специализированных отделах, часто садоводы закупают голландские луковицы и производят большую ошибку. Данные луковицы имеют смещённый период роста, потому что в Голландии климат отличается от местного. И реализуются эти луковицы уже с ростками. Только после посадки в землю — сразу начинается рост. Аналогичный посадочный материал желательно придержать до весны или отсрочить покупку, и тогда только рассаживать.

Transplant in the spring

If the time of lily transplantation is determined in spring, you will need to worry about storing the bulbs dug out from late autumn during the winter period. In order for the planting material to tolerate the winter period well and in the spring was suitable for planting in open ground, it is necessary to dig up the lilies at the end of September or October, during this period they have a good stockpile of substances. It is necessary to shake off the roots of the bulbs, to clear from the ground, to collect in plastic bags with holes for air ventilation, alternating layers with raw sawdust. Bulbs can be stored in the refrigerator or on the balcony. In spring, it is advisable to plant the bulbs in the soil well warmed by the sun, mixing it with sand and rotten leaves.

Unlike the many types of lilies, white lily transplant comes in the summer months. This species of flower has a special cycle of the growing season - the resting stage is in July-August, for such a short period, flower growers need to have time to plant a plant. By the end of autumn, a new white color will begin to develop at the pure white color. The plant does not require frequent transplantation: once every five years is the best period when it is necessary to transplant the plant.

Replanting methods

The need for planting flowers depends on the varieties, the age of the flower and the time of its flowering. There are general basic rules for the care and maintenance of plants in a tidy condition, and most importantly healthy.

The genus of the family of lilies has more than 120 species of perennial ornamental plants, known in great popularity in Europe and Asia. In areas of lily grown for beautiful, diverse colors, colors and flower shape.

Flowers grow favorably and comfortably:

  • on lightweight, loose soil,
  • on a plot with a small amount of sand.

They are very comfortable. At one place they can grow for about five years, and then the bulbs grow into large colonies, become noticeably smaller, and the plants bloom worse. Therefore, lilies need periodic division and transplantation.

A month later, after the completion of flowering in most of the Russian regions, a decrease in temperature is approaching, and frosts on the soil are likely. Thermophilic lilies can not take root and die. If you transplant them into the soil, the temperature of which is below 0 degrees, the bulbs will overcool, the formation of the root system will not occur. Frozen plants can not "wake up" in the spring or very late with the timing of flowering.

When deciding when to replant a plant at a site, you need to intelligently prepare a place for them. The depth of the holes for planting can be observed from 15 to 45 cm, depending on the soil and the size of the bulbs. It is recommended to plant deeper onions on sandy soils, and at a mixed and loamy ten centimeter depth will be enough.

In the hole, it is desirable to fill the sand, which will be analogous to drainage and will not allow moisture to disturb the root system of the lily. An onion is laid on top and the roots are gently smoothed, trying not to damage them, and then they are sprinkled with soil on top. Having rammed the ground, it is necessary to mulch the landing site with sawdust, tree bark or peat. After transplantation, the plant must be watered intensively with water. A few weeks before planting flowers, the soil needs to be rid of lumps - carefully dig. Beautiful flowers of this family have a very strong root system, the length of which can sometimes reach 30 cm.

A few words about lilies

These plants are perennial, but in order for them to enjoy large and bright flowers every year, they must be replanted and divided every three to four years. However, this rule does not fit all varieties of lilies. So, the martagon and the American hybrids, which grow rather slowly, divide and seat every eight to ten years, but the Asian and tubular ones, the bulbs of which grow very quickly, can be replanted annually. Having dealt with the need for transplantation, let's find out when to replant the lilies in the garden.

The best season for a transplant

Like most perennials, lilies can be replanted at any time of the year, with the exception of winter: both in spring and at the end of summer and early autumn. Spring transplantation is complicated by the fact that throughout the entire autumn-winter season it is necessary to preserve the onions, dug out in the fall. You can store them, putting them in a box or a package, hiding in a cellar or a refrigerator, the temperature in which should not be below +3 0 C. When deciding when to transplant irises and lilies, it is worth remembering about spring return frosts, and not to forget about the first autumn frosts.

For each region and gardener terms of division and planting their own lilies. They depend primarily on the climate in a particular area, as well as on the varieties and varieties of flowers planted in the garden or on the site. The best time to replant lilies in the Moscow region and Leningrad region is considered the end of summer or early autumn. But in the conditions of Siberia and central Russia this procedure is recommended to be carried out in mid-August. This is due to the fact that at this time the bulbs are in a "sleeping" state. Many experienced growers advise to focus on the timing of flowering of each plant. And start transplanting a month after flowering.

Can I replant in summer?

When and how to replant lilies, each gardener decides for himself. But it also happens that in order to save the plant (or for some other reason) it becomes necessary to move the flowers to another place. In this case, it is best to transplant the lilies, without destroying the earthy clod, along with the onions in it. If the roots are undamaged, the plants quickly adapt and take root in a new place. It is important at this time to provide the flowers with enough moisture.

Replant lilies

Before you begin transplanting, you need to cut the stems of plants at a distance of 10-15 cm from the ground surface. Pitchfork or shovel, stepping 30-40 cm from the stem of the lily, dig out the bulbs along with the earthy clod, trying not to damage the fragile roots. Carefully shake off the soil and carefully inspect. All damaged or covered with brown spots, the scales are removed, and the roots are pruned, leaving a length of 10-15 cm. Large bulbs, which formed large "nests" with a lot of scales and small lukovichek, carefully disassemble, separating them, if necessary, from each other using knife. The bulbs, separated from the ground and cleaned from the ground, are immersed for half an hour in the solution of the foundation, or in potassium permanganate diluted with water to a light pink color (potassium permanganate). After this procedure, the bulbs of lilies, without drying, immediately planted in a prepared place. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to immediately plant the planting material at a permanent place. In this case, you can store them in boxes or other containers, shifting the bulbs with moist moss or peat.

How to prepare a seat?

When deciding when and how to replant lilies, you need to properly prepare a place for them. The depth of the well for planting can vary from 10 to 40 cm, depending on the soil and the size of the bulb. On the sandy soils of the bulb it is better to plant deeper, but on mixed and loamy ten centimeters will be quite enough. Sand is poured into the hole, which will serve as drainage and does not allow moisture to damage the lily root system. Onion is placed on top and carefully straighten the roots, trying not to damage them, and then cover it with soil. Having condensed the poured soil, it is necessary to mulch the landing site with sawdust, wood bark or peat. After transplantation, the plant must be properly watered.

When planting lilies, it is necessary to take into account how powerful and tall the sought-after plant is. And based on this, determine the distance. So, between large specimens withstand a distance of 25-30 cm, and medium and low are located after 10-15 cm.

Thus, the answer to the question of whether it is possible to replant lilies in the fall will be an unequivocal "yes." It is only important to take into account the species and varietal characteristics of the transplanted plants and provide them with suitable conditions for growth and development.

How often to replace them?

Spring transplantation is more troublesome, but if you have a cold come early or late-flowering lilies, then you have no other choice. Onion need to dig out of the ground in the fall and place in a plastic bag with holes for ventilation. Between the layers of onion is better to pour a little wet sawdust. It is desirable to dig out lilies in October, when there is no cold yet, and the onions have already fallen into a state of rest, having picked up nutrients from the earth. It is most convenient to store a bag with onions in the refrigerator.

Why repot lilies

Even perennials can not be planted and forget about them forever. Lilies refer to this type of flowers. After about four years, they will end a period of high productivity and the plants must be transplanted. This procedure is carried out in two cases:

  1. Required to update the plant. Over the years, the bulb is exhausted, the plant shows signs of degeneration: the flowers become smaller and flowering time is reduced.
  2. The plant must be propagated in case of expansion of the area of ​​the flower garden or the need to get a larger number of bulbs of a particular variety.

Important: the frequency of transplantation for different varieties is different. So, American hybrids should be moved every ten years, and Asian and tubular - annually.

Spring transfer

Usually carried out in late April - early May. The exact date depends on the climate of a particular region.

  • the plant makes its way from the soil and begins to bloom,
  • no additional warming of the flowerbed is required.

  • the need to prepare the bulbs from autumn and their storage during the winter,
  • it is difficult to track the beginning of flowering, after which it is impossible to perform transplantation,
  • flowers take root worse, since the bulb is no longer at rest.

How to transplant bulbs in autumn

To transplant plants was painless, you need to carefully consider the following steps:

Choosing a place for a new flower bed
For lush and abundant flowering lilies need a bright sunny color, as well as a large and windless space. A flower bed for plants can be placed in a less lit place, but then the flowering will not be as spectacular. The soil must be loose and permeable, water should not accumulate, otherwise the bulbs will rot and the plants will die.

Healthy plants delight bright blooms and well-groomed views

Soil preparation
Dig the soil to a depth of 30 cm. Then add superphosphate, sand and peat to the soil to make the soil loose and light. It is important to take into account the acidity - for most lilies neutral or slightly acidic soils are optimal.

Careful soil preparation before planting the bulbs will help grow powerful and healthy plants.

  • Preparation of material for transplantation
    1. Cut the stems near the ground. Make it better with a pruner.
      Use a quality garden tool - it greatly facilitates the work.
    2. Dig out lilies (better forks, they will reduce the risk of damage to plants), clean the bulbs from the ground and dead roots.
      Check planting material: bulbs must be intact and free from disease
    3. Sort. For planting, select medium bulbs.
      Small onions are planted separately for growing
    4. Disinfect the sorted material in conventional potassium permanganate or special solutions. Leave in solution for 30 minutes.
    5. Drain and air the bulbs. After that, they are ready for landing.
      Lily bulbs are quite fragile and require careful handling.
  • Planting bulbs
    Make the holes at a distance of about 25 cm. In the resulting hole, fill the sand as a drainage and install the bulb, gently straightening the roots. Sprinkle with sand on top, and add soil containing nutrients from above. The depth of the hole depends on the type of lily, the height of the future plant and soil. But there is a general rule for all onion flowers: the depth of the hole should be equal to the triple height of the bulb. So, with a bulb height of 5 cm, the depth of the hole should be 15 cm.
    Leave enough space between the bulbs - so grown plants will not oppress each other
  • Shelter flowers for the winter
    Lilies usually tolerate frost well, especially in the central regions. But after transplantation, it is still recommended to additionally take care of shelter plantations in the winter. After the onset of cold weather, you need to cover the flowerbed with leaves and straw, that is, create a mulch layer. Then cover with a spruce top and put the boards so that the protective layer does not fly apart.
    Do not compact the covering layer; it is better to keep the plants loose from cold.
  • In the spring, when the snow melts, you need to remove the protective layer, to break through the soil, to make top dressing from nitrogen fertilizers.

    Be careful: in the spring frosts can return, so during such periods you need to cover the flower bed with film.

    Video: the secrets of growing lilies

    The regal beauty of the lily, which has occupied a worthy place in the gardens, must be protected and preserved. This will help the timely transplant of plants. The procedure will avoid diseases and preserve the well-groomed appearance of flowers for a long time.

    The necessary conditions

    Lily multiply vegetatively and seeds. If the plant is propagated by seed, the first flowers can be obtained only at 5 or 6 year. Therefore, at home, this flower is bred bulbs.

    When choosing bulbs they need to carefully inspect. Bulbs should bSmooth, without stains and without damage.. Damaged specimens should be removed, as they can infect neighboring bulbs.

    Next you need to choose the right place for flowers. Lilies love to grow in the sun, so the place under the flowers should be open. If the plant is planted in the shade, then it will not bloom.

    Lilies - perennial flowers. In order to prevent the beds from thickening, it is recommended to replant them every 3 years: during this period they grow well.

    After choosing the place and time of landing, proceed to the process:

    1. Stems that are close to the ground are pruned.
    2. The bulb is dug very carefully, so as not to damage the roots.
    3. All dried and dead flakes need to be removed.
    4. If the bulb itself has not broken up, then you need to very carefully with a knife to divide it into small onions.
    5. You need to dig holes for lily bulbs. Given the length of the roots, the depth of the hole is increased by another 10 cm.
    6. Put some sand into the hole. Put onion and roots sprinkled with sand.
    7. They fall asleep with soil and mulch (peat, sawdust).

    Aftercare

    Lilies are unpretentious flowers. During flowering, they need moderate watering. If the weather is hot and arid, there is almost no moisture in the soil, then the plants should be watered abundantly. After that when the plant has faded, it can be practically not watered.

    The plant needs light, especially in the morning. Flowers should be in the sun, and the bulbs covered from direct sunlight. This is achieved with the help of stunted garden plants, which are planted next to the lilies. They cover the ground and protect the plant from overheating, do not allow the root system of the lily to dry up.

    If you are cutting flowers from a plant, it is recommended to leave most of the stem. This contributes to the further development of the bulb. Also, the stem must be cut diagonally so that the water can drain and the plant does not rot. In autumn, the plant stems can be cut and left 8-18 cm from the ground.

    Before winter, the plant is mulched with peat. Also, for a good winter you need to cover the plant. Suitable for shelter - lapnik, sawdust, dry leaves, film. Before sheltering you need to check that the soil is completely dry. In spring, shelter is removed even before the first shoots appear. When caring for flowers you need to remember to fertilize them.

    Plants are very fond of mineral fertilizers. It is better to purchase fertilizers in granules especially for bulbous flowers. Lilies need to be fertilized after planting twice a year - in the spring and in the middle of autumn, as soon as the shoots from the bulbs appear.

    For the prevention of diseases it is recommended to spray the plants three times a year with a solution of Bordeaux mixture with a concentration of 1%.

    If the flower is a pervorodka, then the buds will need to be carefully removed in order for the plant to grow stronger and be able to fully and fully bloom the following year. Faded flowers are also subject to removal, because they prevent the development of new buds.

    Learning from the article, when lilies are being transplanted, experienced flower growers need to remember that the sprouts planted in the spring overtake a little in the development of the bulbs that were planted in the autumn. This happens because they are stored all winter in the cold ground. For this reason, before planting bulbs, you should think carefully about when it is best to plant and take into account the particular varieties of your flowers.
