  • Easy to plant and ideal for ponds with limited shelf space.
  • 35cm square floating island baskets can be used individually or linked together.
  • Islands look best planted with a mixture of rafting and clump forming plants so that some plants grow over the basket and soften the basket edges.

These square floating island planting baskets stay 2cm above the water surface to create new planted areas in your pond. The baskets are covered styrofoam floating rings to allow plants to occupy areas of the pond that are otherwise too deep for marginal shelf plants.
