British Pond Plants supplies native pond plants grown in a small nursery outside Llanelli by Stephen Lewis - this is Lew in the nursery. He has been growing high quality British aquatic plants for commercial clients for many years, and he’s a great authority on sedges in particular. The plants are grown without the use of chemicals from seed sourced in the UK. We think that provenance and the way that plants are grown are as important as the type of plants customers buy. British Pond Plants is part of Habitat Aid Ltd.

Habitat Aid is a Somerset based business founded in 2008. We have established a community of small specialist nurseries and growers around the country, who supply our customers with British native trees, hedging, aquatic plants, wildflower seed and heritage fruit trees. We also have partners through whom we can offer landscaping and ecological services. This includes pond building and wetland creation.

In the last two years we’ve donated nearly £50,000 to small UK conservation charities and projects. The NGOs we support include the Freshwater Habitats Trust and Amphibian and Reptile Conservation.
