Kenya cut lilies and buds are known for their beauty. They have large, beautiful flowers with a delightful fragrance. The Lilium usually grows between 2 to 6 feet, depending on its species.
They are planted in deep holes for them to send out roots to make the plants stable. Deep planting also helps to keep the lily bulbs cool in case the temperatures rise too high. These flowers are planted in well-drained soil in a varied climate with cool-warm temperatures. They should be exposed to sunlight at least 6-8hrs a day for the bulbs to flourish.
When cutting lilies, ensure you diagonally trim the stem ends about an inch or so as soon as you get the plants inside the bud. Remove the lower leave on the stem ends before arranging the flowers in a vase so that there is no foliage underwater. To prolong the life of your flowers, add cut-flower food to the water in the flower vase.
There are three types of lilies grown commonly in Kenya.
- Asiatic lilies: these lilies have no fragrance and usually present very smooth petals. They tend to be smaller in diameter and come in shades of orange, gold and rose.
- Easter lilies: these types are white with a great scent and are usually trumpet-shaped.
- The oriental lily: this variety is the third most common type of lily flower found in Kenya. It comes in white, purple, pink, or deep red. They are also relatively heavily scented.
Kenya cut lilies and buds are cleaned by gently spraying water on each leaf. They are then calibrated to prevent them from drying. This process also contributes to the high quality of lilies produced in Kenya. They are disinfected using isopropyl alcohol before they are packed in temperatures that have been brought down to 1 degree Celsius to keep them fresh.
The lilies are packed in peat moss; this is a combination of mosses that can store water. The water in the peat moss keeps the lilies hydrated hence preserving them and giving them a longer shelf life. The stems are packed in boxes of 60 by 40 by 23 cubic centimeters.
Kenya cut lilies and buds are grown in three main seasons; between March-May, July-August, and November-December. During a good season, approximately 1000 stems of lily flowers are harvested
Lilies are mostly transported using the swiftest means possible due to the perishable nature of the plant. If the shipping is done by road, it should be in modern, well-equipped trucks under temperatures of under one degree Celsius. The trucks are also well ventilated to allow for air supply, which further helps in keeping the flowers fresh.
