Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal Winners - Aquatic Plants 2011-2017

Waterside Nursery grow a range of aquatic water plants sold only by mail order through our own website.

We are specialist growers of both marginal pond plants and deep water plants and water lilies for ponds and also miniature water plants and waterlilies for our design of fibreglass patio container pond features. We have a large range of British Native plants all shown by a Union Jack flag.

We are set apart from other online mail order pond retailers by offering pond plants we have grown ourselves that are rooted into mesh baskets using aquatic compost ready to be immediately planted into your pond or container pond. We also grow moisture loving plants for around a pond supplied rooted in solid pots.

The majority of our Nursery site is planted baskets in outside water troughs where the plants will stay throughout the year.

They will transfer to you at any time of year except when there is thick ice across the water. The tunnels are used for propagating cuttings and seed. See our photos below.
