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.

Will floating pond plants come back every year?

It must be noted that a few of them will only survive one season in this country as they are imported from warmer climates, but they should spread during the summer making a good investment. Alternatively there are some native floating plants such as the popular Water Soldier, which will come back each year adding shade and cover to your pond
