Staking the Lilies in My Summer House Garden

My gardens are filled with hundreds of lilies - some already showing off their striking blooms, while others are just days from opening.

Around my farm, I have many, many lilies. I always plant the most interesting flower varieties I can find - through trusted growers and from various nurseries I visit around the world. Lilies can grow very tall - many are more than six-feet. Most lilies have strong wiry stems, but those with heavy flower heads often need staking. In order to keep them looking their best, we use bamboo uprights and twine to give them added support.

Here are photos of the lilies in my Summer House garden - enjoy.
