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 small 55cc plug plants - the size of egg cups - or bare root, depending on availability. We will include up to 13 different species in the collections. It includes plants for different depths of water and damp margins; each plant is labelled and we will email a guide to tell you where they go.

All these wildflowers are grown from guaranteed native seed, most of which is collected by the suppliers themselves. They're grown without the use of peat, fungicides or pesticides.

This collection will be all you will need for a pond up to 15m circumference. If you order 2 collections or more we will include some deeper water species too (see below), which will come with the oxygenators.

We also include bunches of a native oxygenator with each collection. 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 will send these separately to the other plants.

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.
