A Guide to Pond Plants

Aquatic pond plants really bring a pond to life - not only do they greatly enhance the natural beauty of your pond, but they also play an essential role in maintaining the health of its water and inhabitants.

Step By Step Guide To Planting Pond Plants

Follow our step by step guide to successfully planting or replanting pond plants. Before we start, we will answer a few frequently asked questions.

Moisture loving plants for marsh, damp or bog gardens

Bog or marsh plants thrive around the edge of your pond or water feature, where the soil remains damp but not fully submerged. These moisture loving plants are ideally suited for planting directly into soil around the pond edge, maybe where the pond overflows, or in a purpose built bog garden made from surplus pond liner. If they are to be placed in a beached area it may be desirable to plant into an aquatic container that is then directly buried into the gravel. This will contain its growth and spread.

Also known as marsh plants, bog garden plants add pops of colour, height and interest to the border of your pond as well as creating shelter for its wildlife. Freshwater bog plants also help to extend the flowering season around your pond and look stunning when planted alongside traditional marginal plants in the shallows.

At World of Water we have a wide range of carefully selected bog plants for sale, both online and in-store. All our freshwater bog plants are hand-picked to ensure you get the highest quality plants for your pond. Mature specimens of our bog pond plants can also be viewed at many of our centres show gardens. Find a World of Water store near you.
