WHEN YOUR PLANTS ARRIVE
Unpack them carefully, many have delicate stems which can be damaged if stuck to the damp bags.
Place them in your pond as soon as you can.
All plants will have labels with depth instructions on them. Please remember to place waterlilies at a depth where their current leaves are floating on the surface and lower them slowly as they grow.
