BONUS: Can You Plant Easter Lilies Outdoors?

Yes, you can plant Easter lilies outdoor. But it can be tricky, especially if you’re going from a florist-bought variety. The reason why transplanting your Easter lilies from being potted to the ground is that most florists force their flowers to bloom. That makes success rates a lot lower than they typically would.

However, if you persevere and are lucky, you can try planting your Easter lilies in a sunny and well-draining spot in your garden. Just make sure that the weather isn’t going to frost anymore. Now, there are some more technical aspects you should consider, like soil pH and fertilizer. So make sure to learn about those, too!

One other common question is, when do outdoor Easter lilies bloom? Typically, Easter lilies can bloom sometime between June or July.
