Small British Native Pond Plant Collection (2.5 sq.m)27th July 2018
Large Native Pond Plant Collection (12.5 sq.m)27th July 2018
£204.90 – £293.38 inc. VAT
A collection of native plants for a pond of approximately 7.5 sq. mtrs (83 sq ft) with marginal shelves up to 7m (23 ft) long 25cm wide and a depth of 15-25cm. The deep water area of the pond should preferably be at least 50cm (24in) deep. For this collection the baskets options (if selected) comprises a mix of mainly 2 litres with some 1 litre baskets. The plants will need to be potted up or split as they outgrow their baskets but most should be good for the initial season. If the pond is in a windy site it may be preferable to go for larger baskets for some of the plants, especially the taller more vigorous ones, so they are more stable and less prone to blowing over -we would be happy to quote for this.
The collection will consist of the following plants:
2 Deep water plants including a native lily
27 Assorted marginals
And will include good selection of plants for example:
Native alba lily, Fringe lily, Water plantain, Flowering rush, Common cotton grass, Narrow reed mace, Cyperus sedge, Pendulous sedge, Marsh marigold, Square stemmed St John’s wort, Reed sweet grass, Sweet galingale, Creeping jenny, Yellow loosestrife, Marsh woundwort, Purple loosestrife, Soft rush, Hard rush, Greater pond sedge, Water mint, Bog bean, Forget-me-not, Watercress, Water mint, Water crowfoot, Lesser spearwort, Greater spearwort, Hornwort, Starwort, Water crowfoot, Willow moss, Yellow flag, Brooklime and Water figwort.
Plants will be supplied in 9cm pots and bare root apart from the deep water plants with the lily being supplied in a 2 litre basket and the other deep water plant in a 1 litre basket. 9cm plants need to be potted up into larger aquatic baskets unless being planted directly into the bed of a natural pond.
This collection is available without planting baskets with baskets only or as a complete package including soil and aquatic gravel -please select from “Collection options” box below.
Planting in baskets you would need to purchase approx 42 litres of soil and 6.5 litres of gravel. If the baskets option is selected we will supply a mixture of approx 7 x 1 litre baskets and 20 x 2 litre baskets appropriate to the plants selected.
