Finding the right blend of pond plants can be tough, especially if you’re a beginner. If you’re looking for some ideas, check out this list of the top ten water plants that the BBC put together.
The list also includes some tips. I like this one about Pondweed: “Plant one bunch for about every square metre of surface area to ensure good water oxygenation. Thin out excess growth regularly in the summer to prevent it swamping the pond. Brilliant oxygenator, and being evergreen it also works in winter. The stems hide baby fish from predators.”
We have some excellent water lilies available. The pictures you see on the flickr stream to the right of the blog are from that water garden nursery.
