Product Information

Vi Pots, These biodegradable pots are made from natural fibre extracted from annual crop waste such as rice husk. , available in 2 different sizes, they  have 4 small drainage holes in their base which is a similar design to most other existing plastic and terracotta garden pots.  Although these environmentally friendly pots are shallower in design, they are by far an excellent alternative for growing pond plants in. Line the pots with 45 cm square Hessian  or Cloth Liners, These glossy finished pots have a life expectancy of 5 years and are obviously designed to get wet, i have experimented with them submerged under water for two years, and so far i see no signs of decay, Vi-Pots will decompose within six months once broken up and composted.

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
