PLACE YOUR ORDER FOR OUR FRESHLY GROWN EASTER LILIES TODAY!
GROWING EASTER LILIES
Growing lilies is a very complex process, as Payne’s growers can tell you. That’s because the date of Easter changes each year, depending on celestial rules defined in the Gregorian calendar:
- the first Sunday
- following the first full moon
- after the Vernal Equinox (March 20)
Depending on when Easter falls, (this year it’s March 27), there will be more or less natural light available in the greenhouse which affects when the bulbs must be planted, daytime and nighttime temperatures, and how much artificial light or cooling darkness may be needed. Lilies need about a thousand hours of cool, moist conditions to initiate blooming.
