Marginal Plants

Marginal Plants

A group of plants for around the margins of the pond.

Aquatic Marginal plants typically grow in shallow waters around the edges of a ponds, rivers and lakes in baskets, between depths of 4” and 1’6”. Some Marginal plants require deeper water, but they have been placed under the deeper water category. For best results these are suggested to be Planted in Zone 2 on our charts.

During the growing season these pond plants will provide a phenomenal and a great array of colours to your setting. Some plants will provide shade, reducing sunlight that will cripple algae and leaving the water cleaner.

Whilst many of the grasses we have are useful for taking up the excess nutrients from the water and giving plenty of colour through the foliage.

These are essential for the health of any waterways or aquatic eco-systems.

Orders which exceed £280, delivery costs are normally FREE.
