Planting tips

Always use aquatic compost when potting plants to be submerged under water. Other Peat based composts rot and kill plants when submerged under water for prolonged periods. 

To make a mixed planting basket always choose species that like the same depth of water.

All of the plants available on our website which require planting into a basket will come out to you already fully rooted into their suited mesh baskets, planted in aquatic compost, ready for you to place directly into 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.
