Pond Plants for Garden Ponds and Wildlife Ponds

During the main pond season (approx March/April - September/October, weather dependant!), we stock a wide variety of aquatic plants for garden ponds and wildlife ponds.

These include a range of marginal plants, water lilies, oxygenating plants and floating plants.

In addition, we also stock a small range of complementary moisture- and shade-loving plants including Ferns, Hostas, etc.

We also stock liquid and root pond plant fertilisers, pond compost, and a variety of planting baskets.
