Water lilies in bud now

Thanks to some good weather this spring many of the plants we are lifting from the ponds are already forming flower buds.

We do not “force” our waterlilies in greenhouses or polytunnels so they are fully hardy and ready to be planted out straight away.

It is recommended to plant water lilies in a fine mesh planting basket, for more information on this see our How to take care of water plants page. They should start growing about two weeks after being planted and then flowers should appear after a couple more weeks.

Plant Passports

We are registered under SRSF plant health regulations and authorised to issue plant passports under those regulations for the plants that we produce.  

What are Plant Passports?
A Plant Passport is an official label for the movement of all plants. It assures compliance with all plant health requirements for the relevant plant, for example that it is free from particular pests and diseases.

Under the new Plant Health Regulations 2016/2031 (PHR), implemented from 14 December 2019, you will need a plant passport to move regulated plants and plant products within the EU (including the UK).

What is the purpose of a Plant Passport?
Plant Passports ensure that plants can be traced throughout the supply chain, which is essential for maintaining biosecurity. The Plant Passport regulations are applied across the EU, including the UK, which means stakeholders in all EU states must uphold the same minimum standards for plant health.


You will find our Plant Passport printed on the label for each plant product in your order.
