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.
