Growing Eucharis lily

Eucharis lilies are gracing us with their delicate, white, fragrant flowers, which can flower from spring to autumn. A bulb that brightens up a shady area in the garden can also be a gorgeous potted plant. However, they tend to flower less well if the area is too dark.

If planting in the garden, choose a well-drained position and use Searles 5 in 1 Pellet throughout the growing season. Keep the soil moisture consent using Searles Premium Compost and mulch to lock in the moisture and nutrients. If in a pot, plant in Searles Platinum potting mix and liquid feed with Searles Flourish Soluble Plant Food to maximise performance. In warmer regions, they are evergreen, but in the cooler areas they can die down but return with the warmer weather.


Snails and caterpillars are your main enemy with eucharis lilies. Check the plant regularly for these. They are straightforward to split and share with friends, but be aware they are toxic to animals.
