Hi from the UK. I'm looking for some advice about the specific soil requirements for water lilies. In the UK there are many companies offering aquatic compost/fertiliser/soil, but nothing specifically for lilies. What additional nutrients would they benefit from?
Thanks for any help

Thanks for the thread- you're not joking about the raging debate are you? It seems a clay based medium is best. Cheers.
