Wildlife Pond Plant Collection
This beautiful collection of native British plants (and oxygenators as well!) is all you'll need to kick start your wildlife pond. These are some of the best plants we could think of for wildlife and aesthetic appeal, supplied as generous 110cc plug plants or bare root, depending on availability. There will be 6 different species or more in your collection. It includes plants for different depths of water and pond margins; each species is labelled when it arrives.
Typically, reckon on between 5 and 8 plants per metre pond circumference, so our smallest pack - 42 plants - will work for a pond of between around 5m and 8m around. The plants in this option come in biodegradable bags, whereas the larger options are delivered in trays. Each species has a label.
Typically . If you order 2 collections or more we will include one deeper water species too (see below), which will come with the oxygenators.
We include bunches of a native oxygenator with each collection, which we source 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 depending on timing.
If you want more diversity then you can add some of the pond edge seed mix too.
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.
