3 sizes are available: 60cm(24")wide x 25cm(10")high, 80cm(32")wide x 35cm(14")high and 98cm(39")wide x 41cm(16")wide external dimensions

Lightweight bowl in fibreglass with a 5cm( 2") wide rim in a textured 2 tone textured Verdigris finish for a patio pond container.

Container volume is approx 45 litres(10 galls)for the 60cm, 105 litres(23 galls) for the 80cm when filled to the underside of the rim and the width at the base is 23cm(9"), 30cm(12") and 35cm(14") respectively.

These pond containers are lightweight, frost proof, fully watertight and will last inside or out for many years. Fibreglass won't be damaged by frost but as a precaution in cold winters reduce the water level 1cm (1/2") below the rim to allow for ice expansion. Keep the water level to the underside of the sloping rim (do not allow the water to cover the sloping rim as this can effect the paint finish if it is submerged below water)

60cm and 80cm delivered in approx 1 - 6 weeks dependant on demand. 98cm delivered in approx 6 weeks as all are made to order

We use a plant support grid in this shape of container to hold the baskets firmly and in the correct depth of water, Chlorine Guard for treating tapwater if used and extract of barleystraw for algae inhibition. Also available are Plant Collections A - E suitable to use in a 60cm container, Plant collections F - K for the 80cm container and we recommend medium Pond waterlilies and no plant support grid in the 98cm container.

Any plants, grid or barleystraw extract ordered with a container pond will be sent after your container has been delivered.

July 2017

Plants arrived in good condition, ready for the pond and clearly labelled as regards planting depth. Delivery was very prompt - much better in this regard than another supplier I have used.

Plants supplied were mature plants of a good size - not young plants to be grown on.

Only disappointment - nothing to do with the seller - is that one plant has already slid from the margins into the depths of the pond and can't be found! What's the solution? Would shingle added to sloping shelves stay put and level off the shelves? Maybe tether the plant pots with strong fishing line to pegs beside the pond (taking care to avoid creating a tripping hazard) or attach something which floats, as a marker buoy, to recover submerged plants?! Floating planters are OK but it may be hard to arrange for the plants to be submerged to the right depth. Obviously, the Draconian solution would be to remake my liner-based pond and construct it better, with different depth marginal shelves which start out flat (or sloping slightly towards the pond edge) and don't crumble or collapse during construction!
