The UK's Leading Retail Supplier of Pond Plants & Water Lilies

We have kept our prices the same since 2007, unfortunately due to the price increase of potting materials, (pots, trays, labels etc), energy bills, labour, and transit costs, we have had to increase the cost of our plants, dry goods and postage and packing charges

If you're looking to buy the very best pond plants for very affordable prices, you've come to the right place!

I have been collecting and cultivating interesting, unusual and rare water garden plants and aquatic pond plants for over 32 years. My collections of water lilies and aquatic pond plants are as diverse as the countries I source them from and I have hundreds of aquatic and perennial plants that are very rare in cultivation - many of which you simply won't find anywhere else. 

We grow and sell a huge range of water garden and pond plants to suit the needs of our UK clients which include the general public, landscapers, garden designers, wildlife projects, swimming pond projects, and botanical gardens etc.

Water gardening covers many different garden environments, which is why we are called Lilies Water Gardens; we grow pond plants for the following types of water gardens and wild natural damp habitats: all sized garden ponds, natural wild ponds, lakes, patio water features, damp woodland areas, rock gardens, bog-gardens, canals, ditches, streams, water meadows, swimming ponds and moist borders.

We have the most diverse collection of pond plants and water garden plants in the UK, available to buy online or from our retail nursery. Our collection includes hundreds of exclusive, new and rare pond plants that you simply cannot buy anywhere else in the UK. We grow over 250 different water lilies and over 150 different species and cultivars of Pond Iris as well as many other very special pond plants.

Adding to the above, we also offer our unique collection of Ferns, Alpines, and moist perennial pond plants to enhance all aspects of water gardening. Our chosen varieties of poolside plants in cultivation are grown for their flower and fauna to enhance and bring to life all ponds and water garden habitats.

Using our extensive range of over 750 pond plants and water garden plants, you will be able to create a beautiful new look for any UK pond.

I feel very proud to be able to supply the most diverse and largest collection of pond plants, aquatic plants and water garden plants in the UK and Europe. Affordably and competitively priced, all our pond plants and aquatic plants are available to buy online.
