Default planting pond plants in pots

I have a water garden and last year got some hardy lilys from a friends co-worker. I wasnt sure what to do with them so I placed them in a container added some rocks and put them at the bottom of the pond for winter. Well spring rolls around and they are still alive. I was wondering what is the propper way to plant them. I have heard to line the planter with burlap and add some loam soil, place the bulb in that them top the loam soil off with a layer of pea gravel so the soil stays in the pot. Anyone have any other better ideas on how to accomplish healthy lilys in a pot. Right now i have some new growth, but the pads are mostly redish in color instead of their usual green. I believe this means they are not getting enough nutrients and want I would like to brighten them up!
