POND PLANTING SCHEME SIZE 1 START UP FOR WILDLIFE
A balanced selection of plants chosen by us to encourage wildlife in small ponds. We recommend mainly British Native if you are looking for long season interest for butterflies and bees. We also know that for this size of pond some British Native plants are too vigorous so our choice of plants forthis size pond are limited.
Pond size - 1m² - 2m² (9ft² - 20ft²)
Attracts - Dragonflies, bees, butterflies, hoverflies and amphibians (including newts)
- 2 x Oxygenators (bareroot)
- 4 x Upright shelf plants (rooted in aquatic compost in 11cm mesh baskets)
- 2 x Rafting shelf plants (rooted in aquatic compost in 9cm mesh baskets)
- Only British Native plants
- Mainly British Native plants - our favoured option for larger plant choice & longer flowering season
- Any plant
Extra info - Each plant will come individually wrapped with its own planting instructions ticket, refer to individual plants for maintenance details.
All plant choices depend on seasonal availability.
Any specific requests or useful information that you think we could use to help tailor your scheme to your needs can be left in the general comments box when going through checkout.
This scheme does not include a waterlily but we recommend you add one from the waterlily pages to suit the size and scale of your pond.
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.
How does my order arrive?
Plant orders are dispatched to UK destinations only but we cannot send to Northern Ireland. Your order will be picked in the Nursery and will be sealed in airtight, waterproof packaging to keep it fresh during transit. Please unwrap all plants from the packaging as soon as possible and place in the situation/depth specified on each plant ticket.
