Growing waterlilies

Waterlilies are among the least challenging plants in my garden. All you need for growing waterlilies is a tub at least 2 feet in diameter and one and half feet in height, soil (preferably clayey soil), some kind of manure and of course your water lily plants.

Lay down the soil mixed with the fertilizer in your tub. The soil should be slightly pressed down and should come up above the halfway point. Now plant the waterlilies in the soil, making sure to see that the roots are neatly packed under the soil. You could finish off by laying a layer of pebbles or white sand on top and fill the tub with water.

You need to ensure that your newly planted lilies are in the shade for a week to ten days . You only have to fertilize the soil once in three months and fill the tub from time to time.

Your plants will bloom only when they get enough sunlight at least a 6-8 hours of sunlight.

    I love water lilies. we used to go to a lake in Indiana with our canoes, we would canoe into the water little patch and find a water Lilly to take home and display in the house.
