Product Information

Carex Riparia are British native marginal sedge pond plants, with showy flowers of red-brown and jet black. They are planted best in a container as their spread is indefinite. These pond plants are suitable for architectural uses in patio pots and ground cover for water fowl on lakes. They grow to around 120 cm in height and flower from April-May, Water depth of 10-50 cm over the crown.

WARNING Not to be planted into lined ponds as their growth can puncture your pond liner

Aquatic Soil

Aquatic soil is heavy in weight an will therefore increase the cost of postage and packing. Heavy sand or clay based top soil from your back garden will make a fine planting substrate, molehill soil is even better. NEVER use peat based soil or your plants will float up out of your newly planted baskets/planting bags.

Aquatic Top Gravel

Aquatic gravel is heavy in weight and will therefore increase the cost of postage and packing. Top gravel is used as a decorative finish or as an added protection and deterrent to inquisitive/plant destructive koi-carp and other large fish. We only sell 4-6mm grade aquatic gravel as any grade larger will inhibit plant growth. NEVER place large pebbles or stones on top of your Aquatic Planting Baskets
