     Wild Flower Plant Collection of Pond Marginals

late March to October only

Late spring/early summer is usually considered the best time to establish marginal plants when the temperature is rising - they will establish more quickly and successfully then.   

Bog garden plants on the other hand can be planted at any time of the year so long as the ground isn’t frozen.  It is best to plant from autumn to late spring as the plants are less likely to dry out then (main cause of failure) and can get established before the summer.   

This collection consists of  wild flower plug plants or bare rooted plants which are native to the UK.  They are suitable for planting in the shallows of a pond between a depth of 10cm and 45cm.  If you would like plants suitable for planting around the edge of a pond where the soil is wet, but the plants will not be submerged for prolonged periods, please select the Bog Plant Collection. They should be planted out into a suitable location as soon as you receive them.  The collection will be selected from the best quality plants available at the time of your order.  The plants may be bare root or plug depending on availability. You will receive at least 6 different varieties (ie 2 of each when ordering 12 plants, 4 of each if ordering 24 etc).  Your plants will typically be selected from the following:
