Marginal Plants for Small Ponds

Below is a selection of marginal plants perfectly sized for the smaller pond.  These plants have slow to medium growth rates so will not overrun your pond in a season.  Plants are important for providing cover for emerging wildlife, encouraging pollinators and shading the water. 

For a pond measuring 2 to 3 square metres we recommend 12 to 18 - 1 litre marginal plants.
