How to propagate Lily 'Black Charm'
Lift bulbs when dormant and gently peel off external scales making sure each has a small amount of the flat base attached. Replant the parent bulb straight away. Insert the scales halfway into a pot free-draining potting compost, ensuring the pointed tip is upright. Place this container into an unheated greenhouse or cold frame over winter. Keep the soil moist, but not wet. Bulblets will form over the summer and produce leaves in autumn. Plant up these young plants in spring into individual seven cm pots. Keep in a sheltered, partially shaded spot. In the autumn - year two - plant into the ground, three times their diameter deep. Plants can take two more years before they produce flowers.
