Floating Plant Islands for ponds that dont have planting shelves Print Page Print this page

Floating plant islands look great planted on their own as individual islands, the square islands can be linked to each other to create a raft of low-growing marginal plants,

They have attachment loops so can either be anchored as isolated islands in the middle part of the pond or attached to corners,

Floating plant islands  provide a excellent method of alternative marginal planting for those who have inherited or forgotten to add marginal shelves to their pond, the round islands look unique when left to free float.

When planting your islands use ordinary sinclairs potting compost, there is no need to use aquatic soil,
