Important Delivery/Covid-19 Information: Updated 09.04.21- Our dispatch time is now back to our regular time of 5 working days, (weather permitting) All orders are dispatched on Mondays to Thursdays. Due to some maintenance work on the nursery and the slow growth of newly potted plants due to cold weather earlier in the season, the nursery will remain closed to walk in visitors until further notice, we are hoping to open again in 2-3 weeks time. Our Online store is open all year around. Click and collect option is available at online checkout. Availability info: Due to very cold weather in January and high online demand in February, Availability at this present time is limited, our nursery is full to capacity with newly potted plants, so we predict a large availability update towards the middle of April.

Pond Plant Collection 2

Product Information

This Unique collection of small pond plants are suitable for growing in containers and water features such as old butler sinks and half barrels,  have all been chosen in mind to bring colour and attract wildlife to your Patio and Container Water Garden, and oxygenate natural clay bottomed ponds and lakes, sometimes certain species are out of stock and therefore we will send substitutes of the same value.

This special collection is a complete planting kit, and consists of the plants and planting products listed below. 

1 x Typha Minima, ( 7 cm pot ) marginal plant 

1 x Eleocharis Acicularis, ( 7 cm pot ) oxygenating plant

1 x Juncus Submodulosa ( 7 cm pot ) marginal plant

1 x Baldelia Ranunculoides ( 7 cm pot ) marginal plant

1 x Sisyricnhium Californicum ( 7 cm pot ) marginal plant

1 x Callitriche Stagnalis ( bunched ) oxygenating plant

1 x Nymphaea Little Sue ( bare rooted ) water lily

1 x Bag of Aquatic Soil ( 10 litre )

7 x Hessian Liners ( 45 cm square )

7 x Small Round Aquatic Planting Baskets ( 17 cm )

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
