The scoop on Lily of the Valley Forcing Pips - Personal Pick-Me-Up

If you plan to plant your lily of the valley pips indoors to force, these are the pips to choose. They are oversized, the top 10% of what our grower harvests. Theses pips are designed to be planted in pots and grown under bright lights; they'll flower in just a few weeks. And of course, after blooming inside they can be transplanted to a shady spot outdoors to grace the yard with more fragrant bells next season and beyond. 6 flowering size pips, enough for a 5-6' pot. Botanical relief to get you through the last weeks of cabin fever.

Why Grow Lily of the Valley?

  • Fragrance that perfumers have relied on for centuries.
  • Grows well in light to moderate shade
  • Not on the favorite foods list for deer and rabbits
Indoor forcing pips are the largest growers' produce; most will flower the first spring. Then transplant outdoors and enjoy them for years to come, spreading, flowering and perfuming your shade garden.
