Adopting sad calla lilies in my new garden- how to transplant...

sweetpea_gardener23February 22, 2008

Whoops! I posted this in the lilies forum on accident and then realized I should post it here!

Hello,

I was wondering if you would be able to tell me how to transplant calla lilies that are scattered around aimlessly around my garden. I just moved into a rental and I'm allowed to garden, but the calla lilies that someone planted are not in the best places. They don't look like they're doing so hot either.

I'm a newbie gardener, so I have little to no experience gardening. Would appreciate the help!

Thanks,

Ashley

Dig up the tubers being careful not to bruise them.

Planting depth should be around 3 inches deep.

Plant in a well draining soil with organic matter added and also a portion of slow release fert.

Waterlogged soil is the number one enemy of most Aroids.

Cala lillies from what I understand can handle full sun quite well.

I add course sand or perlite to my soil or sometimes both.

These tubers go dormant for part of the year and should be kept a little drier during that time.

I hope this helps a little.

John
