A collection of native plants for a pond of approximately 50 sq. mtrs (550 sq ft) with marginal shelves up 22m (74ft) long 50cm wide and a depth of 15-25cm. The deep water area of the pond should be at least 60cm (24in) deep or preferably 120cm (4ft) if planting directly into the lake bed to control the spread of the more vigorous plants.
The collection will consist of the following plants:
12 Deep water plants including 8 native lilies
120 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 Fibre optic Sweet galingale Branched bur reed Marsh marigold Reed mace Norfolk reed True bulrush Square stemmed St John’s wort 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 Cotton grass Fool’s watercress Hornwort Willow moss Starwort Yellow flag Brooklime and Water figwort.
Plants will be supplied in 9cm pots and bare root apart from the deep water plants which will be 1 litre or 1 5 litre pots f.or the lilies.
If the baskets option is selected we will supply a mixture of approx 40 x1 litre baskets and 80 x 2 litre with the 2 litre baskets for the taller/larger growing plants and 8 x 5 litre baskets for the lilies. Planting in these baskets you would need to purchase approx 320 litres of soil and 27 litres of gravel. We are happy to quote separately for this if soil and gravel is required.
