PLANTS FOR POND

A cool new area of The Tropical Tank forum for coldwater fish and aquaria, and outdoor ponds.

PLANTS FOR POND

Postby cobden28 » Fri Apr 15, 2011 12:06 am

Not sure whether this query should go in the Plants section of the forum.

Basically it's coming up to the time for my garden pond's annual clean and I need some ideas for planting. It's a pre-formed pond liner which has been in situ since we moved here; the centre area of the pond is kept clear for the fish but I need ideas for plants that can be kept on pots on the ledges of the pond.

I have a healthy fish & amphibian population and I think I need something planted around the edges to give any youngsters space to shelter.

Suggestions welcome!

Just go to your local garden centre and see what they have in the pond and bog plants section.
