Pond Plants

Why pond plants?

Pond plants are a stunning addition to any water garden or water feature - not only do they enhance the natural beauty of your pond, but they also play an essential role in maintaining a healthy ecosystem and environment  for your pond and its inhabitants. 

Pond plant types

From marginal plants and oxygenators to floaters, bog plants and stunning water lilies, our pond plant collections have been carefully selected and can be combined to suit different pool sizes and types.
