Water Gardens — Dividing water lilies

When should I divide my water lilies?


I think August is the best time. Don't despair, however, as they are pretty tolerant things and you can get away with dividing them at almost any time. Most varieties will not require repotting every year and will be fine with a threeyearly repot and divide adequately as you feed them. I use and recommend Tetra Lily Grow.
