Pond Plants for filtering Swimming Ponds Print Page Print this page

Swimming Ponds have become very popular in the last few years, What could be more natural and exilerating than Swimming amongst Waterlilies with a natural surrounding of marginal pond plants and Dragonflies flying overhead.

The plants in this category are excelent for natural filtration, also known as phyto-filtration, but have also been chosen for their natural looks and splendid display of summer colour

Sold in 1 litre, 9 cm and 7 cm solid black pots or sometimes  bare-rooted depending on the speed of seasonal growth and spread

Please see our category listings in the left hand menu for aquatic planting accessories, aquatic soils and gravel.
