Welcome to Lilies from the Valley

!!! Giving Lilies a chance to GROW again !!!
Oriental and Asiatic previously cut, commercially grown bulbs


"Please be advised that all orders that were recieved from April ( that have not been fully completed) up to July 9th 2020,
will be shipped when the new stock arrives. I do have an updated one coming to fill all orders.
  Although due to covid issues, re-stocking inventory has been slow in shipping to this business as well as others across Canada.
As I wish to make sure the bulbs arrive in good condition and am working on a shipping solution to get my stock .
My supplier is concerned due to the time spent in shipment on the quality of the bulbs,
when they arrive to my location ...when using their 'normal' means of shipment.

Update coming soon...

Thank You for your patronage and your understanding at this strange  time.
I am so sorry for the inconvenience at this time also."

* Only for sale in Canada at this time, sorry *

Things you should know

Those wishing to pay by Cheque or MO please go to the payment page for details



I am sorry to say that due to logistics and issues with where I previously obtained my lily bulbs,
I now have to purchase at least 80% of all my bulbs from a supplier which are not previously grown and 
recycled the bulbs are freshly harvested and ready to bloom for the commercial industry.
They are kept in crates with coconut/peat moss no soil so no chance of any pests in a large commercial cooler 
set at a temperature to prevent growth until shipped.
They come straight from a cooler where they are stored and await the heat to start growing.
There is no need of me vernalizing the bulbs, as they are already to spring forth days after planting...

Due to purchasing new product certain benefits that I had been able to establish years ago,
I can no longer employ. IE: Such as freebie dozens for certain levels of purchase price.
I may be able to substitute other types of bulbs in those circumstances and will contact those customers who
have reached that volume purchase point.
If circumstances change back to what they had been in the past I will gladly re-employ those benefits and will notify the website if and when that occurs.
Based on what my purchase cost prices are, my web page prices will have to be modified to reflect that.

**When and where I can, I will keep the price the same which was one dozen for $10.00.
Certain types and varieties of bulbs I may now have to sell per bulb. Again this is a difficult choice
and will endeavour to keep prices as low as possible for the customer. **

Large volume purchases will be priced accordingly.
The free shipping on volume purchases will remain the same at this time.
I am revisiting the shipping costs to see how I can keep the price reasonable.
If you have any questions, please email me. Please remember also that I do work a full time job which 
has certain rush times that makes checking or replying to emails possibly delayed.
Thank you for your patience and your understanding during this time..

News and tips

Late winter and going into early 2017 the weather has been up and down
in Nova Scotia and possibly all around Canada. Hopefully bulbs and perennials have not heaved out of the ground. Since there is no real snow cover here one worries if the rain and ground water has penetrated into root balls and bulbs. There will be a
chance if it has that
 a) there has been damage resulting in lost plants
 b) plants will be later in waking up and starting to grow...
all plants should at least start showing signs of life by the end of May.
If you find with the ground begins to thaw that there are puddles forming in areas where plants and bulbs are it would be a good idea to create small ruts leading away from those areas so plants do not die from being water logged.
 More tips to come

News I have some wonderful new varieties which unfortunately have to be priced per bulb.
When I have located recycled bulbs of any nature I will post them on the website at a great price.
I am also looking into some perennials as well keep an eye on this website or on my facebook page by the same name

If you are scent sensitive please read here.

Lily bulbs come in various types, colours and scents or no scents.
 I made say non-scented and someone else can smell a scent.

Asiatic's are non scented

La Hybrids are now retaining some scent in the newer  breeding between Lilium's and Asiatic's.

Orientals are highly scented and each has their own aroma some faint to very strong. If you are sensitive remember when planting near the home or recreation areas.  The same goes for OT or Oriental Trumpets.

Now the newer Roselilies that are being bred are said to have no scent due to not having  reproductive parts to the flower
No nectar and no pollen...these are great also due to the nature of the petals some are double to triple instead of single petals. 

Maybe in the future I will have other types of lilies, perennials and bulbs for purchase and will describe them here in a nut shell.

Times of operation  : 
During most weekdays I can be found at home after 6 pm if I am not at a meeting. Sundays I normally have off and will usually be around home.
If you are in the province of Nova Scotia and have a garden related event you would like me to attend for the 2017 year. 
 I am booking now as my calendar is filling up.  I will need to book time off of work so I may attend as many events as I may book. 
Garden conventions, expos and community events as well as flower shows and exhibitions 

Be different and have a lily show and bulb sale for the Summer  in information on how to do that ask me how.
Have some fund -raising to do ??? For community or School fundraisers??? 

Now is the time to book in bulk Tulips are also available when supplier allows..

A new order of lilies and tulips is expected soon.

What others have to say about the Lily Lady

The Lily Lady goes online

Tracey Martin of Mount Denson has started a new online business selling recycled Asiatic and Oriental flower bulbs.
The Lily Lady goes online
A Mount Denson gardener has come up with a unique idea for a business that recycles bulbs used for growing 
cut flowers.
Although these bulbs are perennial, florists cannot afford to wait the three to five months it takes for them to regenerate.

Tracey Martin gives the bulbs a chance to grow again by selling them through her business â€Lilies from the Valley†www.liliesfromthevalley.com", where customers can buy a dozen lily bulbs for $8 to $10.

Martin is the president of the Mount Denson Garden Club. Sheâ€s close to completing a one-year course as a flower and vegetable judge and also freelances as a flower arranger for weddings and other occasions. Sheâ€s also got a home crammed full of houseplants. At one time she counted 500 amongst her collection.

Martin says sheâ€s always been drawn to lilies because of the fragrance of the orientals. In addition to these, 
she stocks Asiatics.

Visitors can place their name on a waiting list for varieties not yet in stock and a free lily bulb is provided for birthdays.

Lily bulbs are easy to grow says Martin but a few basics must be followed.
They do not like wet feet, the bulb will rot, she said.

The flowers grow in sun or shade but are taller in the latter as they stretch for light. They benefit from phosphate, gypsum, and grow well in humus-enriched soil. Heavy clay tends to stunt the plants.

Martin says she doesnâ€t even bother to amend her soil.

I just pop them in and let nature take its course. I don't even water them most of the time. But they put on quite a show, she said.

The lilies grow well on slopes and hills, but require support if the location is windy. The bulbs like to be shaded 
and Martin suggests planting vegetation around the bulbs that dies back by the time the lilies bloom in July.

Lily beetles are pests in some areas of the province but this grower says they havenâ€t bothered her yet.

I have seen the damage caused by this pest. Not pretty. The larvae are red, kind of like a potato beetle. 
They can strip the leaves very fast. When you see clusters of 'poop,' the larvae is protecting its self and will
pupate in the castings, she said.

Normally Martin handpicks bugs but with these beetles, she uses a control like Sevin while carefully following 
the instructions.
