Marginal Plant Collection for Wildlife

Some marginal plants are particularly good for attracting wildlife, not only helping hide small critters underwater, or allowing insects to emerge when they turn from larval stages to adults, but also attracting pollinating insects.

This collection includes some of the best  plants for attracting wildlife, and the absolute best possible selection will be picked at the nursery, depending on the time of year.  

Planting Marginal Pond Plants

Marginal or bog plants are generally sold either as immature plants in smaller pots or maturer plants already in aquatic plant baskets.

We recommend any water garden plants in smaller pots are replanted immediately into larger aquatic planting baskets. while pond plants supplied in aquatic baskets can remain in them in they have room to grow, although it is worth bearing in mind that taller plants such as Iris's and grasses will need a deep larger basket as they can be prone to blowing over in the wind, these deeper baskets will provide some counter balance against the wind and plenty of room for root growth.
Spreading and rafting pond plants can be planted into shallower baskets, but remember they will need plenty of room for growth, so it is always worth while replanting regularly to ensure the best possible display.
If planting a wildlife pond it may be possible to plant directly into a planting area such as a bog area/ garden. Should you wish to contain the growth of these plants in such an area it may still be worth considering sinking the plant in a basket to limit it's spread.
