Mail Order: What To Expect
Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Your lilies will arrive as: Bare Root (only root and little to no foliage). Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!
The rhizome (root) of your water lily needs to be positioned in the aquatic planting media so that the cut end tuber is against the side of the planting container, not in the middle. This gives the root as much room as possible to spread across the pot. Place planting container at the bottom of the pond in up to 18" of depth allowing a minimum of ten inches of water to cover the soil surface.
Water lilies should be fertilized throughout the growing season. CrystalClear® Thrive™ Aquatic Plant Fertilizer or TetraPond® LilyGro™ Aquatic Plant Food or Laguna Plant Grow Fertilizer Spikes can be pushed into the soil at planting time and from April through August, following all manufacturers' recommendation for fertilizer application rates.
For best results, trim or prune as leaves and flowers begin to turn yellow or brown, remove them completely, discarding them to keep as much excess organic material out of water-body as possible.
After the first hard frost, remove lily pads. Sink water lilies to the deepest portion of your pond for winter.
The first step towards effectively treating any pond weed is proper identification. Grower's Choice Hardy Water Lilies is recommended for use against each of the weeds listed below. Click on your desired weed for more information and alternate control options.
