"Oxygenators" Sometimes referred to as "pond weed", "oxygenators" don't actually add much oxygen to the water. What oxygenators are good at is growing quickly, in so doing they remove excess nutrients from the water, and therefore reduce the growth of algae. Unfortunately the EU have banned the sale of Elodea, one of the best oxygenators, and as of 2nd August 2017 we will no longer be able to supply this useful plant. Starwort Callitriche stagnalis Native Can be grown either as a marginal plant or submerged in shallow water as an oxygenator 1 litre Pot £5.90 Mare’s Tail Hippuris vulgaris Native Can be grown either as a marginal plant or submerged in shallow water as an oxygenator 1 litre Pot £5.90 Ivy leafed Crowfoot Ranunculus hederaceus Native Can be grown either as a marginal plant or submerged in shallow water as an oxygenator 1 litre Pot £5.90 Fibre Optic Plant Scirpus cernuus Can be grown either as a marginal plant or submerged in shallow water as an oxygenator 1 litre Pot £5.90 Marginal Plants As the name implies these are plants for the shallow edges of the pond. Marginal plants help break up the outline of the pond, provide some shade & also provide a refuge for baby fish, tadpoles, etc. Marsh Marigold Caltha palustris Native Large round leaves and copious bright yellow buttercup like flowers in April and May, excellent marginal and will also grow well in damp, boggy conditions 1 litre Pot £5.90, 3 litre Pot £14.90 White Marsh Marigold Caltha palustris alba Native cultivar Cultivated variety of the native marsh marigold with round leaves and white flowers with yellow centre. Flowers in April and May, excellent marginal and will also grow well in damp, boggy conditions 1 litre Pot £5.90 Cuckoo Flower Cardamine pratensis Native Low growing, creeping, spring flowering plant with pale lilac flowers on a stalk.

Flowers April/May. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Iris “Black Gamecock” Iris louisiana “Black Gamecock” Vigourous iris with tall straight leaves and large purple black flowers with yellow highlights. Flowers in May & June, a vigorous plant best suited to medium and larger ponds 1 litre Pot £5.90 Yellow Flag Iris pseudocorus Native Tall straight leaves and large bright yellow flowers in May, a vigorous plant best suited to medium and larger ponds 1 litre Pot £5.90 Blue Flag Iris versicolor Tall straight leaves and large blue/purple flowers in May, not quite as large or vigorous as Iris pseudocorus 1 litre Pot £5.90, 3 litre Pot £14.90 Iris Lucky Dip Iris sp. We have a number of Iris in 3 litre pots where the labels have gone missing and we can’t therefore be sure of the variety. These are available whilst stocks last at the special price of… 3 litre Pot £8.90 Soft Rush Juncus effusus Attractive clumps of thick like reed like vegetation. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Corkscrew Rush Juncus effusus spiralis Corkscrew variety of sort rush with attractive clumps of thick like reed like vegetation spiralling out like an explosion in a fireworks factory. 1 litre Pot £5.90, 3 litre Pot £14.90 Cardinal Flower Lobelia cardinalis Dark red foliage growing upwards to produce a flowering stem covered in bright red flowers. Flowers late summer to early autumn. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Creeping Jenny Lysimachia nummularia Native Vigourous creeping plant with round leaves growing either side of a central stem and bright yellow flowers from June to September. Can be grown as a marginal or bog plant. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Golden Creeping Jenny Lysimachia nummularia “aurea” Native cultivar.

Flowers late spring and early summer. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Mimulus “Lothian Fire” Mimulus sp. Sadly, not the original “Lothian fire” but a mimulus with dark green foliage and unusual double “hose in hose” red flowers. Flowers late spring and early summer. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Square Stemmed Monkey Musk Mimulus ringens Vigourous plant with bright green leaves and pale purple snapdragon like flowers. Flowers late spring and early summer. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Water Forget-me-not Myosotus palustris Native Low growing creeping plant with small bright blue flowers with yellow centres. Flowers May to August. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Watercress Nasturtium officinale Native Vigorous growing plant with small white flowers from May to October. In growing vigorously it helps to remove nutrients which would otherwise feed blanket weed and other algae, it is therefore an excellent plant for plant bed filtration systems. But can be invasive. Although edible, we do not recommend eating cress growing in ponds where fish are present, or ponds that have been treated with any pond chemicals. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Dwarf Reed Mace Typha minima A dwarf species bullrush much better suited to a typical garden pond than the native species which grows too tall and vigorously. 1 litre Pot £5.90 Brooklime Veronica beccabunga Native Low growing creeping plant with rounded leaves and small blue flowers.

Water Hawthorn Aponogeton distachyum Sends long elongate floating leaves to the surface each spring, providing shade before the lilies get going. This is followed by flowering stems with strange elongate white flowers. The plant dies back during the summer, but comes again in the autumn, just as the lilies start to die back. 2 litre Pot £14.90 Flowering Rush Butomus umbellatus Native Best grown with about 8-12” of water cover, this plant produces long thin reeds, but also flowering stalks with clusters of pink flowers. Temporary pot £3.90, 1 litre Pot £5.90 Fringed Water lily Nymphoides peltata Not a true water lily, but with small lily like leaves and pretty yellow flowers, this is an ideal plant to provide surface cover in smaller ponds. 1 litre Pot £11.90 Golden Club Orontium aquaticum With large broad leaves this plant gets it’s name from it’s unusual inflorescence which is a long white and slender topped with bright yellow. 1 litre Pot £11.90 Water Lilies Lilies provide shade for the pond, giving the fish somewhere to hide from predators, and reducing algae growth. With lilies ranging from the pigmy varieties to the vigorous, and a range of flower colours, there is a lily variety that is suitable for almost every pond.
