Why buy from Pond Planet?
Britain’s only native water lily has handsome green foliage and white, but not prolific, flowers. Best grown about 1 metre deep, but it can grow in up to 3 metres of water if allowed to adjust very gradually, since its growth rate at these depths will be significantly slower. Plant in still water away from splashing fountains. Lower gradually so the leaves can stretch to the surface within a few days. Remove dead leaves and flowers during the growing season.
Pond Planet Water Lily Guide:
Water lilies are best placed in still water away from constant splashing and water flows from the likes of fountains and waterfalls. Lilies grow best in full sun but can tolerate some shade. When placing lilies into the pond make sure to lower them in stages to allow the plant to acclimatise to its new depth, this way the leaves can stretch to the surface during each stage of the descent.
Ideally 1Ltr pond lilies should be re-potted into a 3Ltr or larger pond basket to encourage growth and flowering. All other sized lilies do not require re-potting but would benefit from being potted up. 30Ltr water lilies should not require re-potting for approximately 10-15 years.
Lily spread and planting depths are provided as a guide only, with the depth being the amount of water above the crown. In shallow water excessive leaf growth will rise above the surface and reduce flower blooms. The leaves of lilies shade the pond providing shelter for fish from predators such as herons. The reduction of sunlight helps reduce algae growth. Make sure to remove dead leaves and flowers during the growing season.
