Hippeastrum and Lily Bulb Gallery Introduction
Hippeastrum and Lily Bulb Site Map

Aberdeen Gardening - from Bonnie Scotland. Profile of plants that grow well in North East Scotland:-

"I am Alistair and have been gardening in Aberdeen with my wife Myra for forty years. I suppose it would be quite true to say that we are rather fanatical about our garden.

Neither of us are professional gardeners, however over the years we have built up a great deal of knowledge as to how garden plants perform in the cooler climate of Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland.

My posts are to provide information to the amateur gardener. I am not infallible, however I will let you know exactly how the plants which I feature performed in this part of the country."

When you are on the home page of Aberdeen Gardening and you click on 'Your Gardens', then 'Esthers boring garden blog', you will be able to see this very important information on how to solve the problem of male aggression:-

"This is about how to solve the problem of male aggression in densely populated trout farms. It comes from ‘Mendel’s Dwarf’ - a novel by Simon Mawer. (1997.) (I’m uncomfortable with his use of commas but if he wants to put them after brackets and before ‘but’s . . . well, I wouldn’t want anyone interfering with my punctuation so I’ve left his alone.)

'You rear some female trout (XX of course), but you dose them with male sex hormone. This turns them into males of a kind. They produce sperm, for example. But genetically they remain XX, and so every sperm cell produced contains an X chromosome. Using these 'males' as a source of sperm, every fertilisation will be by an X sperm with an X egg. Every baby trout that these 'males' father (if you'll forgive the expression) will turn out female.'

That’s neat isn’t it? Don’t want fights? Miss out males."

R. V. Roger Ltd, The Nurseries, Malton Road (A169), Pickering, North Yorkshire, YO18 7JW - Tel:(01751)472226 - Fax:(01751)476749 is a traditional third-generation family-run nursery, with the emphasis on plant quality and first-class customer service. The range of field-grown fruit trees grown is one of the best in the country, including many traditional varieties, which are becoming quite rare. They also grow over 40,000 roses in nearly 300 varieties. The rose field is usually in flower from the middle of July until the autumn, when you are welcome to visit and walk through the field. Besides shrubs and ornamental trees, R. V. Roger also produce four bulb catalogues throughout the year, offering choice for a plant or plants by mail order direct from the 280 acre nursery.

All lilies are potentially lethal to cats. As little as one leaf can kill a cat if they eat it, and any part of the plant is dangerous, including the pollen, flowers and leaves. The first symptoms that are likely to occur after a cat ingests lilies are depression, lack of appetite and sometimes vomiting. If left untreated, the symptoms will worsen and include dehydration, diarrhoea, breathing difficulties and bad breath. It is likely that the cat will eventually suffer from acute renal failure. If medical treatment isn't sought within hours, the cat will probably die. If you think your cat has eaten any part of a lily plant you should get it to a vet as quickly as possible. The cat may have to go on dialysis to improve its kidney function. It seems that cats are the only animals to be affected by lilies in this way. Other plants to be cautious of include dieffenbachia (dumb cane or leopard lily), hemerocallis (day lily), cyclamen, poinsettia and amaryllis. Laburnum, some berries and toadstools can also cause problems occasionally. Although there are many poisonous plants, it is unusual for them to cause harm to cats. Most at risk is the bored kitten that is left alone and starts to chew houseplants or picks up plant trimmings unnoticed whilst out in the garden.


With over 10 years in business, Swines Meadow Farm Nursery has grown into one of the UK's most specialised growers of Exotic and Rare Plants. Colin and Karan also go out and do talks and demonstrations to gardening groups, societies and organisations so if you are thinking of arranging an entertaing evening or afternoon for your local club or group don't hesitate to send us an email or ring us for details.


Photos and descriptions of Deer-resistant bulbs from A.D.R. Bulbs

"Lily. To the ancient Egyptians, the trumpet-shaped lily was a symbol of Upper Egypt, the southern part of the country. In the ancient Near East, the lily was associated with Ishtar, also known as Astarte, who was a goddess of creation and fertility as well as a virgin. The Greeks and Romans linked the lily with the queen of the gods, called Hera by the Greeks and Juno by the Romans. The lily was also one of the symbols of the Roman goddess Venus.

In later times, Christians adopted the lily as the symbol of Mary who became the mother of Jesus while still a virgin. Painters often portrayed the angel Gabriel handing Mary a lily, which became a Christian symbol of purity. Besides being linked to Mary, the lily was also associated with virgin saints and other figures of exceptional chastity.

chastity - purity or virginity" from Myths Encyclopedia.


Note - the Bulb Gallery names of Spring Bulb,
Late Summer Bulb, Autumn Bulb and Winter Bulb refer to when the bulbs are delivered to you, not when they flower.

Flower Colour

Flowering Months

Above all, it must be remembered that lilies do not like wet feet; they must have good drainage. The lily bulb is never completely dormant. Lilies like to have their feet in the shade and their heads in the sun. This shade can be provided by shrubs or perennials.
