This page and the following one was extracted from the Bradshaws 2005 catalogue and provides a good cross section of what's available to ensure that your water garden plants are planted correctly and so that you get the most enjoyment from them.

This is What Bradshaws Said in 2005 ...

Once you have finished your pond construction you will want to put in some plants. Bradshaws have found a collection of plants that are really easy to install and produce fabulous results. Each pack contains:

  • quality aquatic basket

  • fertilizer tablet

  • clay granules (to mix with garden soil making aquatic soil)

  • rooted plants

  • gravel for the top of the basket

  • instructions

Each pack is sold individually and will plant in the basket supplied. Water lilies come one per pack while marginal plants have either two or three plants per pack depending on the size of the plant.
