* Required Fields

  • We select plants for you for a pond area of approx 4 - 6.9 sq m (43 - 65 sq ft)
  • 12 portions Native submerged oxygenators, 14 marginal shelf plants (sent as 6 sets of 2 upright shelf plants and 2 rafting plants, ready potted), 2 waterlilies (ready potted). All plant choices dependent on seasonal availability

Plants chosen will include a mix of horizontally rafting and upright emergent growth plants to encourage breeding newts and emerging dragonflies. Good plants for pollinating bees, hoverflies and butterflies will be included too. (See Planting a wildlife pond page).

We would recommend the additional purchase of 6 contour baskets one for each of the 6 sets of 2 upright shelf plant types. Put each standard size basket of a plant type together in a contour with added gravel (not supplied) for stability and the effect of an instant, larger clump.

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.

The plants will come wrapped individually and will need to be placed in the pond at the correct depths for each different species so that each area of the pond creates a habitat for a different wildlife group including flowers for insect pollinators.

Thanks for my order of plants as a gift for a friend. They arrived in excellent condition with all clear instructions for planting up. My friend is very pleased with her water garden I created as a birthday present. I will definitely be using you again!
