Hi, I have 3 beautiful white large arum lillies in my pond, they have been amazing for the past few years, however this has been luck rather than judgement. I am hoping that you could tell me how best to care for them. They are in a 7ft pond but sit on ledges about 1ft down. I have cut them back each year just to the level of the water, as I am unsure whether u should cut them below the water surface. We have some very savage koi carp which I am afraid may cause the plant some damage if I cut them too far down, or do u think otherwise. I would be very interested in any advice about caring for them, as I would hate to loose any. Also for anybody who has koi and lillies these were a great alternative to lillies on the surface of the pond, which the koi destroy, and they look amazing. I have also just bought a dark red arum which I would like to introduce to the pond, but it is in a pot on my patio, would also like advice about how to introduce this to the pond.
