Care Tips - Do not throw away a dormant basket of Aponogeton distachyos in the summer thinking it has died. It is an early season plant that grows leaves and flowers from February to May in cool water. In the Summer months it goes dormant and, like a daffodil bulb, disappears completely from view.
When it starts to grow back add a XL feed balls for aquatic plants to give it a boost and it will respond with more leaf and flower.
Extra info - This deep water surface cover plant is a good complement to summer flowering waterlilies to give surface cover early in the year.

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.
