These Lilies are dry packed baby plants, and as such need starting gently. Ideally, place these baskets on a shallow shelf of the pond, where only the top of the plant is at the water line, and allow them to establish. Alternatively, set them up submerged in a pot or planter to start whilst they develop, and move into the pond once a little bigger.
As these Lilies are planted in a basket prior to being placed in the pond it helps with the common problem of fish digging them up.
Once established lilies do best planted at a depth of 40 to 120 cm.
