Answer: Lily of the Valley (Convalaria majalis) grows from a pip. The plants like partial shade and regular watering. Plant clumps or single pips in soil amended with lots of organic matter (to help retain moisture). Plant pips 4-5 inches apart, and 1 1/2 inches deep. If you're planting clumps, space them 1-2 feet apart. Lily of the Valley will spread, making a carpet of groundcover, and is especially nice under deciduous shrubs. When foliage dies down, mulch with peat moss. New leaves will grow in the spring and new flowers will follow. Better luck with your next batch of Lily of the Valley!
