Making a pond in a pot

Making a pond in a pot

'Making a pond in a pot' was published in RHS Weekend in The Garden,  magazine of the Royal Horticulural Society, July 2016 ( with ourselves listed as the specialist supplier for ponds in pots and suitable pond plants.

We have designed our own fibreglass containers for making a pond in a pot so that there is no drainage hole to seal over and the fibreglass finish does not need painting with a sealant as it is not porous.

These come in 3 different sizes and each size can be ordered in a choice of 15 different colours (14 are polished gloss and 1 finish is a matt, textured stone look that will age like real stone).

We have also developed, and had specially made, a support grid system to use as a shelf so that the baskets our aquatic plants are supplied in fit into the grid and, once located, these will not blow over in the wind.

To plant a pond in a pot you can either choose a selection of plants from the pond plant, waterlily and oxygenating pages or choose one of our prepared plant schemes A-K (some prepared for sun and some for shaded areas).
