Plant my jersey lily
Plant preferably between September and the end of November or between March and the end of April, when the winter reserves are formed and the temperatures are not too low.
Bury the roots a few centimeters so that the foliage is flush. Fill and pack well around the plant so as not to leave a pocket of air.
