Positioning Marginal Pond Plants
Position marginal pond plants on shallower planting shelves around the margin of the pond. Many marginal pond plants can go in marsh or bog areas where the soil remains damp but it not submerged. Each pond plant has its full requirements listed including planting depth range, growth spread, ultimate height and flowering season on its product page.
Tall marginal plants including the popular pond iris’s, reeds and bullrushes look great at the back, while lower growing Caltha's and Creeping Jenny adds colour and texture to the front of the pond. TIP: Marginal Plants tolerate different planting depths, the depth is from the top of a planting basket to the water surface if required buying deeper basket will reduce the planting depth. (Pond Shelf Depth Less Basket Depth = Dept of planting)
