Flowering Months
Remove yellowing leaves and faded flowers regularly. If growing water lilies in containers move them to a sheltered position against a house wall for the winter, or place in a cool greenhouse to prevent the water freezing through. When the leaves of mature plants begin to emerge above the water surface, lift them from the water and divide overcrowded crowns. Repot young portions of the crown and discard the older portions.
Plant water lilies in ponds and containers of undisturbed water during spring or early summer. Fill aquatic baskets with aquatic or heavy garden soil, and plant water lily rhizomes just below the soil surface. Push some aquatic fertiliser pellets into the soil to feed the plant. Top the container with a layer of gravel to prevent the soil washing away. Gently lower containers into the water and position them on temporary supports such as bricks so that they sit just 20cm (8") below the surface of the water. As the leaves grow to rest on the water surface, the container can be gradually lowered to its final depth of 30 - 45cm (12 - 18") below the water.
