growing water lilies-what soil?

Bristol, Somerset, United Kingdom

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

Steve there is a very good discussion on planting medium for lilies going on at:(just highlight copy and insert in the address box)

This is the Water Gardening Magazine Pond Forum and the debate is raging.

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