Pond Plant Collection
This lovely 51 plant collection of native British pond 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 generous 90cc plug plants or bare root, depending on availability. We will include 6 different species in the collections. It includes plants for different depths of water and damp margins; each plant is labelled with planting instructions.
All these wildflowers are grown from seed in a specialist nursery in the UK. They're grown without the use of peat, fungicides or pesticides.
This collection will be all you will need for a pond with a 5m to 10m circumference. If you order 2 collections or more we will include some deeper water species too (see below), which will come with the oxygenators.
In addition to the 51 plants we also include bunches of a native oxygenator with each collection, which we buy in from a specialist grower in Cornwall. Depending on seasonal availability this is usually Hornwort, Ceratophyllum demersum, or could be Crowfoot, Ranunculus aquatilis, Hottonia palustris, or similar. The bigger the collection, the more we will include. We may send these separately to the other plants as they have to be sent out completely fresh.
If you want more diversity then you can add some of the the pond edge seed mix to this collection.
Please note that these plants are only available on a seasonal basis. The nursery grows new stock from autumn to spring, so we do not deliver over this period.
