Planting tips -  Islands look best planted with a mixture of rafting and upright plants so that some plants grow over the basket and soften the basket edges. Use 1 rafting(9cm) and 1 upright(11cm) plants per floating island if you remove them from their baskets or 2x rafting(9cm) plants if you leave them in their baskets

Some examples of rafting plants; Houttuynia cordata Chameleon, Mentha aquatica, Oenanthe javanica Flamingo, Potentilla palustris, Veronica beccabunga

Some examples of upright plants; Anemopsis californica, Caltha palustris, Mentha cervina or alba, Ranunculus flammula.
