Specific Plant Care:
Place in shallower water and allow to grow into deeper water or lower the basket slowly over time.
General Marginal Care:
All our plants will come potted in aquatic compost. Our 9cm plants come in a solid pot, so will need to be repotted.
The 1ltrs and 3ltrs will come in Finofil aquatic baskets ready to be placed on your pond shelf at the required depth (use bricks to change the depth if required). The mesh pot allows nutrients and oxygen from the pond to flow through the pot without any soil loss.
Each plant also comes with a comprehensive label offering further planting advice.
* Please note when pre-ordering plants:
When ordering multiple plants at the beginning of the season please take note of the 'Normally Available from' in the plant information above.
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!
Please note you will be charged at the point of order for all items, whether they are on pre-order or ready to leave the nursery immediately.
