We can't overstate the need to source aquatic plants carefully. We only sell native, non-invasive pond plants with British provenance. Our specialist suppliers of aquatic, wetland, and marginal plants grows these plants themselves in Norfolk. We source our oxyenators from a grower in Cornwall.
See below for a list of our plant and seed collections for ponds and wetlands. If you want to buy single plant species - rather than collections - visit another outpost of our empire, www.BritishPondPlants.co.uk .
Please note that these plants are only available on a seasonal basis from spring to autumn - although the preplanted coir rolls and mats are available all year around.
The plants could not be easier to plant. They're mostly good size plug plants (4 or 5cm in diameter), although we do supply some as bare root, depending on the season. The pond plant collections come labelled, with a guide as to where to plant which plants. We don't include anything punchy in these collections or in the coir rolls and mats, so don't worry about anything taking over. Species are also selected for their aesthetic appeal and value to wildlife.
As Chris Baines put it "a wildlife garden without a pond is like a theatre without a stage". You will be amazed at how quickly the wildlife arrives, and what spectacular knock on effects you will notice to the ecosystem in your own back garden or landholding. You will attract some of our most beautiful and charismatic species.
We're proud to be a corporate associate of theFreshwater Habitats Trust, who are an invaluable source of help and advice on all things fresh water and benefit from sales of our aquatic plants and seed.
