Selection of British Native plants chosen to encourage wildlife in small ponds 9 sq ft surface area 3ft x 3ft (1m) or as an add on for an already planted larger pond.

Includes 2 portions Native submerged oxygenators, 4 Native shallow marginal plants (ready potted), 3 Native floating plants(bareroot) or potted rafting plants dependant on seasonal availability.

Plants chosen will include a mix of rafting and emergent plants to encourage breeding newts and dragonflies, as well as providing surface cover (See Planting a wildlife pond page). This scheme does not include a waterlily but you could add one from the waterlily pages to suit the size and scale of your pond.

The plants will come wrapped individually in their mesh baskets and will need to be placed in the pond at the correct depths for each different species. There will be a selection of depths involved, including oxygenators for the deeper water, and both rafting and upright plants so that each area begins to create a habitat for a different wildlife group. Good plants for pollinating bees, hoverflies and butterflies can also be included. (See Planting a wildlife pond page)

Excellent website with lots of info to help you select the correct plants for the location. Placed order on Saturday and the order arrived early Tuesday morning. Delivery was a bit pricey however the plants were really well packed, and there were 2 texts (day before and hour before) telling you when they would arrive so worth it. Plants in really good condition with instructions for each on depth of planting etc. Overall really pleased and would use again.
