Why Buy Pond Plants
Adding pond plants will not only just add colour and interest to your pond or water garden, they play a vital role in the ponds ecosystem by absorbing excess nutrients (nitrates) which if allowed to build up can be toxic to pond fish and koi. Additionally, freely available nutrients give algae the food it needs to thrive. Pond plants such as water lilies, deep-water plants, floating plants and rafting marginal pond plants offer great shade and protection for the pond and its inhabitants. This shade benefits algae control and it reduced the sunlight it needs to grow. We suggest having around two thirds of your pond covered with pond lilies and deep-water pond plants during the warmer growing months.
