Pond Plants to Buy Online direct from us in UK - specialist growers of Aquatic Plants & Water lilies:

Pond plants for Marginal shelf areas & Water lilies for deeper water grown on our own specialist Aquatic Nursery in Leicestershire, UK since 1995.

We send them to you already rooted in a mesh basket and Aquatic plant soil suitable to place immediately into your pond or container pond as they are adapted to our outdoor temperatures. Submerged oxygenating plants for ponds are sent bareroot. We have a good range of indigenous British Native plants for sale – mainly grown from seed from our own stock plants.

Prepared Pond Planting Schemes – an easy way to purchase a balanced ‘Starter Kit’ of plants for ponds with different depths of water. You just need to know the size of your pond to buy the correct scheme. We choose the individual pond plants for you. You can choose to have your Pond Planting Scheme as either ‘Only British UK Native’ plants, ‘Mainly British Native’ plants or ‘Any’ aquatic plants.

Fibreglass Container Ponds create a water gardening feature for the smallest garden spaces – ideal for balcony or patio.


We are mail order only and dispatch our pond plants for delivery to you at UK addresses on Tuesday – Friday. We offer Free Delivery on orders of over £50 to Mainland England & Wales. Some Scottish postcodes and all Island destinations have a surcharge. We can no longer send to either Northern or Southern Ireland or the Channel Islands.


Tips and Advice pages are written by Linda & will tell you more about Planting your Pond & about the many wildlife visitors to your garden pond area as it matures.

Our Blog posts are useful reminders of wildlife due to visit or jobs to do in your pond at different times of year.
