Do I need water lilies in my pond

Deep water plant such as water lilies are not just about looking pretty. The water lily plays a key role in the health of your pond by providing essential shade and surface cover for your fish and water life as well as helping reduce algae growth by inhibiting light levels. Water lilies also absorb a large amount of nutrients (nitrates) from the pond during their growth season, reducing this available food source from any pesty algae.

Water lily types & sizes

We stock a huge range of water lilies all suitable for UK ponds. For smaller ponds and small water features such as a half barrel we have small water lilies including a number of pygmaea lilies varieties. For an average size garden pond we suggest buying a water lily for our medium lly range with a spreads upto 100 cm and a planting depth between 30-90 cms depending on variety. The large ponds, lakes and water garden we have a range of large lilies that will a much spread if left unchecked and can be planted down to 150 cms.

How many water Lilies

As a rule of thumb we suggest the average garden pond should be approx two thirds covered by leaves in the summer. This can be achieved with water lilies, floating pond plants, rafting marginal plants or deep water plants such as water hawthorn which has the benefit of being in leaf earlier in the season.
