    Hi Pauline Thanks for your telephone message last week. Everything arrived safely and is just about all in the pond. I had to order some more pots this morning though for some extra plants that were given to me. Hope you sort your website teething problems. Regards, Nick

    hi i have recently taken over a fishing lake and i am looking to reed line some of the margins and put lilies in the middle of the lake. i have been looking through your products but i am unsure as there are so many different types of plant looking at the lilies they have a maximum depth of120cm is this the deepest they could be planted in the lake as the lake is quite deep in places? thanks richard

    Hello Wetlands I have an existing pond on my patio, brick built 6' x 3' 3' deep. I have drained the pond by drilling holes around the base, but about 4" of water is left in the bottom which will not drain away, if I now fill up with soil for a bog garden will it go sour. Is there anything else I can do?

      Hi Jill You could put stone on the bottom to fill in the 4 inches of water then put the soil on top of that . I hope this helps you . John

    Hello Wetland, We have small pond 2.4 m X 1.3 m max depth 55 cm at bottom of our south facing garden. It is shaded by two small maple trees which I have cut back to allow more light . Also the pond is near the rear garden fence so does not get much sun at all. It catches some sun in the afternoon but only small part of the pond . Presently there are no plants in it - just the small green stuff that covers the water surface. We intend to empty the pond,clean it out and start again with British native plants. We don't intend to add fish . We may add a pump to use a water feature presently unused. We would like some advice about whether we should put sand in bottom of pond prior to refilling, if so what type of sand ? Also please suggest type of British native plants to introduce to our pond - oxygenating,marginal and lily ?
