Ponds are a fun and relaxing component of many gardens, and water lilies make a popular blooming addition.
Water lilies have large, round leaves with beautiful flowers in many colors. They can be purchased already growing in a pot or as a rhizome or tuber that needs to be planted.
Place your new water lily in a large pot with new potting soil, making sure there are holes in the bottoms and sides of the pot for water circulation. Add pebbles to the surface to keep the soil in place.
Place the pot at the appropriate depth in the pond, and wait for the leaves to reach the surface. When they do, the beautiful blooms are not far behind!
