2. The plant’s soil and water needs

While lily of the valley can survive in almost any environment, the plant thrives in moist soil that’s rich in nutrients. Good drainage is also a plus. While it prefers acidic or neutral soils, it can somewhat tolerate alkaline soils. Make sure your plants receive at least one inch of water each week; you may need to water them more often during periods of high heat. Do not fertilize lily of the valley unless the soil in your area is severely lacking in nutrients.
