Please note that these are plug plants which will require potting into suitable conditions as soon and they arrive. 

For this we recommend our Pond Planting Packs, which include baskets, soil, gravel and fertiliser. Available in 3 or 5 packs here or as an additional purchase above. 

Care Instructions

When your pack arrives unwrap carefully and make sure all plants are damp before potting.

 

Planting Instructions

Take a suitable fine-mesh basket, half-fill with aquatic soil. Place plant in centre of basket. Be careful not to damage the roots of the plant when placing. Fill remainder of basket with soil. Lightly firm soil around crown of the plant to within 2.5cm of top of the basket. Gently apply a layer of washed horticultural gravel. Submerge the re-potted plant in the pond to allow absorption of water and discourage any seepage.

We encourage you to initially place the basket at a shallower depth to allow the plant to acclimatise. Then lower to the required depth.
