Water Lilies Scented, richly coloured water lilies are probably the most desirable of all pond plants. The leaves shade the water providing shelter for fish, helping to keep it clear and reduce algae.
These gorgeous varieties arrive established in 3ltr pots with full planting instructions. Lilies should flower in the first year. We recommend no more than 2 thirds of the pond surface is covered by lilies or floating plants, so, one potted lily would be enough for a pond size of 1mx1m. Lilies like still water, so do not place near fountains or where water can splash onto the leaves.
Our Packaging and Despatch All our aquatic plant range is packed to order and shipped in specially designed boxes which have been tried and tested, to ensure they arrive with you in tip top condition. Plants are carefully wrapped in polythene bags before being placed and secured in strong and sturdy boxes - keeping your plants safe both inside and out.
Care is taken when packing to minimise the risk of damage due to the plant being too tall for the box, but sometimes we may have to cut or trim leaves to fit the packaging. Please note our aquatic plants are supplied by specialist growers, if you are ordering multiple pond plants, your order will be held until all plants are in stock so that they can be despatched at the same time.
