Marginal Plants for Medium to Large Ponds

Below is a selection of marginal plants perfectly suited for a medium to large sized garden pond.  These plants have medium to fast growth rates so will establish well over the season. 

Plants are important for providing cover for emerging wildlife, encouraging pollinators and shading the water. 

Medium Sized Pond - For a pond measuring 4 to 6 square metres we recommend 15 to 24 x 1 litre marginal plants or 6 to 18 x 3ltr plants.

Large Sized Pond - For a pond measuring 8 to 12 square metres we recommend 35 to 72 x 1 litre marginal plants or 21 to 36 x 3ltr plants.
