Place the hardy water lily tuber at a 45 degree angle with the non-growing end against the side of the pot. Add several Highland Rim Fertilizer Tablets (1 tablet per gallon of soil). Place tablets right in front of the crown (where the leaves and roots connect) of the tuber. Be careful that the tablets are not touching the roots, as this will burn them. Press the soil around the roots being careful not to cover the crown of the plant. Add a layer of gravel over the soil, again being careful not to cover the crown. It is better to plant lilies too high, than to plant them too deep. We like to use gravel that is about 1/2" in diameter, although rinsed pea gravel will also work. Gravel helps keep the soil in the pot and also keeps the fish from digging in the soil. Hardy lilies go to the bottom of the pond 18" to 36" deep. Some of the smaller varieties can be 12" deep.
