Small Pond Starter Pack – Native. This pack contains only native plants suitable for a small pond with planting ledges. The pond starter pack includes:
1 Alba Water Lily – No pond should be without at least one of these beautiful plants. Alba water lilies areÂ the only water liliesÂ that areÂ native to Britain therefore we include one Alba water lily that will add interest to your pond. As well as the attractive blooms the rafting, heart shaped lily pads will provide shade and shelter for fish and wildlife. This shading will also help to reduce the growth of algae. Also included are indentifying labels and suitable planting baskets.
2 Nymphoides peltata – Water Fringe also known as Floating Heart.Â Attractive heart-shaped mottled foliage with bright yellow fringed flowers. For the deeper water area of the pond.
8 Native Marginal water plants – AÂ selection of eight native pond plants which are suitable for the shallow water areas, together with labels and planting baskets. These will be chosen from plants that will give a variety of habitats, form, height and colour and thus make an interesting display.
Pondflora plant food – Pondflora is a slow release pond plant fertiliser that provides all the nutrients which pond plants need in order to flourish. Simply place the tablets in the soil at the root of the plant to ensure that your plants benefit from the plant food without encouraging undesirable plant growths such as algae.
