Gravel Bag (3ltr)

A 3ltr Gravel bag suitable for topping plants for stop fish accessing roots or just to add a bit of weight.  


When ordering multiple plants at the beginning of the season please take note of the 'Normally Available from' in the plant information above.

Your order will be dispatched once all the plants are ready for sale, so it is good idea to order plants within the same month range to avoid delays.

The 'Normally Available From' is a guide only and based on when this plant has been ready for sale in previous seasons.  

This is subject to change as our greenhouses are not artificially heated, so we rely on the British weather to be kind to us!


PAYMENT - Your card/Paypal account will be charged for the full amount at the time of ordering, even if your plants are on Pre-Order Status.  

We do this to avoid delays during the season when cards are no longer valid and payment methods need changing.  If you are not happy to pre-pay for your items then sign up for our newsletter and order once they are available.

If you want to check on the status of your order then just email us and we will be happy to give you an update on how the plants are growing and their proposed release date.


All our plants are grown in the UK in unheated greenhouses and in cold water, this produces stronger plants for the UK climate but also means that our plants can take longer to mature for sale if the spring weather remains cold.

We are in daily contact with the nursery from mid February and as soon as the water starts to be heated by the sun, then we see big changes in plant growth on a daily basis.

We will only send out plants once they have established a sufficient root system, to ensure they travel well and reach you ready to be put straight into your pond.  

Although it may be frustrating waiting for a plant, it grows bigger, stronger and a better root system under the glass in the greenhouses, so please be guided by us and our experts at the nursery, who will only allow us to send plants once they are strong enough.

Your order will be dispatched once all the plants are ready. Please note we will take payment at the time of order to reserve your selection.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for an update.  

Our 9cm plants arrive in solid pots and will need repotting into aquatic baskets before placing in the water.

Our 1 litre, 3 litre, 5 litre, 10 litre and 30 litre plants will arrive in a Finofil aquatic baskets, potted with aquatic compost.  These baskets are perfect for allowing nutrients and oxygen to filter through the soil).  We recommend re-potting the 1ltr waterlilies into a 3ltr aquatic basket either immediately or after the first season.  

Please note that the 30 litre plants weigh over 50kgs.  

Each plant also comes with a comprehensive label offering further planting advice.

Finofil aquatic baskets are made from 100% recycled plastic and manuafactured in the UK.  They can be recycled at your local recycling centre or any kerb side recycling that collects black plastic. Plant labels are recyclable.

Individual care instructions are available on each plant description and will also be printed on the labels.  

Depth is measured from the top of the pot to the water's surface.

Water Lilies like still water, they also like to keep their leaves dry, do not place them too close to fountains or other splashing water.

Place the water lily in your pond so that the leaves remain on the surface, gradually lower as the leaves grows outwards across the surface, making sure the leaves remain on the surface.

Depth is measured from the top of the pot to the water's surface.

Pruning - Deadhead, removing yellow and brown leaves regularly throughout the growing season.

Koi carp and ducks find waterlilies very tasty - so we do not recommend them for Koi ponds unless they can be protected.
