We believe the correct planting is an integral part of pond design. As well as being important aesthetically and ecologically, with the right surface coverage plant problems such as algae and blanket weed can be avoided and a healthy pond can be easily maintained. Our experts are on hand to advise on this and to plan a planting program for you.
Aquatic plants are stocked from early spring through to late autumn with fresh stock arriving weekly. Customer orders are welcome and for extra convenience, we can arrange for plants to be delivered direct to your home and we are happy to quote for planting them correctly for you. We are even able to supply any additional soil and baskets you might require.
Stockists of native pond fish including;
- Gold and Blue Orfe
- Japanese Koi (available from late March.)
All our fish have a weekly health check.
Waterwise is a unique water-gardening experience, based within Poplar Nurseries at Marks Tey. We are guaranteed to have exactly what you are looking for and look forward to seeing you soon!
