A pond in the garden is lovely. It not only attracts animals, it is also perfect as a design element and there is a lot you can do for a great look. It becomes even more beautiful when you plant water lilies that use their flowers to transform the water surface into a colorful sea of flowers. But not every water lily blooms the way you want it to.
If she doesn't, read ours here Tips and solutions with it Bloom water lilies:
- It gets too little sun. Water lilies should get at least six hours of sun a day. Only then will they unfold properly and bloom as you imagine.
- The water shouldn't be too shallow. The deeper, the better. If they don't bloom and just form leaves, that could be a reason.
- Fountains and fountains are also a thorn in the side of the water lilies. If they are constantly sprinkled with water, that is not exactly beneficial.
By the way: If the water surface is too densely populated with water lilies and the leaves line up, then it is time to take out and divide the plants.
