Floating Pond Plants

Floating plants provide shelter for fish and other animals. They also help reduce algae by reducing the light in the pond and absorbing nitrates. We recommend a third of the surface of the pond should be covered by floating plants.We sell seven varieties of floating plant, two are native to the UK. In 2010 we started stocking the hardy strain of Trappa natans native to Europe, although they require a good summer to over-winter. Please ask for details. They are sold loose or in carry away tubs. Please note some floating plants are now restricted
