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.
We recommend the additional purchase of 6 contour baskets one for each of the 6 sets of 2 upright shelf plant types received in 11cm baskets. Put all of a plant type together in a contour basket with added gravel (not supplied) for stability and the effect of an instant, larger clump. Smaller 9cm baskets contain rafting plants and do not require a contour basket for stability.
We recommend the additional purchase of 2 of Aponogeton distachyos if it is seasonally available to add to the flowering interest period in your pond.
Also look at Barleystraw minibales to add to your pond to help algae control
