Container ponds featured at Chelsea 2015

By Wednesday of Chelsea 2015 a large amount of interest had been shown to our 60cm orange container pond planted with Nymphaea candida - the dwarf white waterlily.

Rachel de Thame recorded with us for a BBC programme about taking home a bitesize piece of Chelsea for your own garden. She chose our patio ponds.

We had 5 fibreglass container ponds on the exhibit this year. 80cm in Weeping Red and in Granite and 60cm in Marble, Gunmetal and Orange.

We planted the Weeping Red container pond for shade with seedhead interest and structural shapes. The Granite finish was planted for sun with waterlily and Iris in flower.

The Marble was a Native plant collection including Caltha palustris, Eriophorum angustifolium, Veronica beccabunga, Myosotis scorpioides and Potentilla palustris and the Gunmetal a combination of Iris versicolor Mysterious Monique and Oenanthe javanica Flamingo.
