Our Small British Native Pond Collection is a collection of plants suitable for a pond of approximately 2.5 sq. mtrs (28 sq ft) with marginal shelves up 4m (13 ft) long 20cm wide and a depth of 15-25cm. The deep water area of the pond ideally should be at least 45cm (18in) deep.
This is designed to give a good selection of the different types of pond plants necessary to create a healthy balanced ecosystem which will attract and support wildlife diversity in your pond. It will have a mixture of low growing, medium and taller marginal plants and provide flowering interest throughout the season. It takes the stress out of planting up your pond and offers a good discount over the individual prices of the plants. Note the collection does not include a water lily as the native lily is a little large for a small pond, however you could add a suitable lily from our collection of small water lilies by clicking on the following link: Our Water lilies by size (the dwarf lilies may be a little small and the medium/large lilies too big). please note the cost of this is not included in the collection price.
