Pond Plant Collection
This lovely collection of native British plants is what you will need to plant up your pond. We've selected the best plants we could think of for wildlife and aesthetic appeal, and supply them as 4cm or 5cm plugs or bare root, depending on availability. We will include 5 different species in the smallest collection and more as the total number ordered rises up to 10. The collection includes plants for different depths of water and damp margins; each plant is labelled when it arrives to tell you where it goes. As with all our plants, they are grown in the UK from UK stock.
If you want more diversity then you can add some of the the pond edge seed mix to this collection.
Reckon on 8 plants per metre perimeter of you pond. We also include bunches of a native oxygenator with each collection free of charge. Depending on seasonal availability this is usually Hornwort, Ceratophyllum demersum, or could be Crowfoot, Ranunculus aquatilis, or similar. The bigger the collection, the more we will include. We will send these separately to the other plants; they are usually available over the spring and summer.
Please ask for a quote if your pond/lake is larger than 65m circumference.

Please note that these plants are only available on a seasonal basis. The nursery grows new stock from autumn to early spring, so we do not deliver over this period.
