Kit includes a yellow water lily (Nymphaea chromotella), planting basket, top quality aquatic soil and decorative gravel.

Top Tips
- Water lilies flourish in still water, so do not plant them near a pond pump or fountain. As these Lilies are dry-packed, young plants, they need starting off gently. Initially, place the filled baskets on a shallow shelf of the pond, where only the top of the plant is at the water line, and allow it to establish.
- Alternatively, set them up submerged in a decorative pot or planter on your decking or patio to start, then, when established, move them into the pond.

Care Guide
- The mesh container is specially designed to allow water to circulate through the compost, providing the plants with both oxygen and nutrients.
- To plant up, add 1/3 of the soil to the basket and place the lily on top, spreading its roots. Add the rest of the soil and the gravel on top.
- After potting and once established, all you need to do is to place the pot into a pond. Initially the pot should be placed on a stack of bricks so the leaves float on the surface of the water.
- As the plant matures, remove one layer of bricks at a time, gradually lowering the plant into the pond until the desired depth has been reached.
- Water lilies require sun to grow, blooming when water temperatures reach 15C (60°F), so best positioned in full sun.
- Depth of the water should not be less than 60cm (2ft) nor more than 120cm (4ft).
- Feed in spring and summer, removing yellow leaves and spent flowers regularly to maintain blooming.
