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.
Will my plants arrive potted?
Yes, all our 9cm, 11cm and 23cm Marginal Pond Plants, Deep Water plants and Waterillies will be sent out to you pre-planted in a mesh basket with our aquatic compost and will have been fed with an aquatic feed ball.
Bunched and loose Oxygenators will be sent out bareroot or bunched with a weight and can be dropped straight into the pond as they are delivered .
Moist plants are sent out in solid pots that you would remove before planting into the soil.
Can Koi fish or ducks eat my plants?
Yes, they may well do. We cannot guarantee that any plants will survive hungry fish and ducks. We would recommend going for Iris or woodier stemmed plants and forming some sort of barrier between the plants and any large fish or wild fowl.
