Rachel de Thame with our orange fibreglass pond in a pot

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

Rachel de Thame did a recording for the Wednesday 20th May afternoon programme on taking home a bitesize piece of Chelsea for your own garden – 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.

The Weeping Red was planted for shade with seedhead interest and structural shapes, the Granite 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 Kermesina and Oenanthe javanica Flamingo.
