Looks good with the lily in there. I have one of these with a pump fitted but it is not very successful so I have just decided to discard the pump and plant it up. Did you put any compost/gravel at the bottom?

No Gee , theres no gravel or compost the lily is in a pot , the pump does work by an electric pump ....... when it,s running everyone wants the loo ...LOL...

Thanks Sandy .. it,s in one of those plastic pots that you see with holes in the sides for water lilies , it isn,t anything special ! a friend gave it to us from out of his lake when he was having a clear out so it isn,t meant for small areas , it always surprises me each year when it flowers :o)

Wait for the spring Sandy , it will have longer to get established in the good weather , I,m always worried about the water freezing in the barrel in the winter as the wood expands and leaves gaps for the water to come through , I usually put a ball on the water in the winter to try to stop it freezing ....

ok amy, i got a liner then forgot to put it in :o(, so may do that for next year
