How to plant pond plants
If your pond has a liner, place your marginal plants in aquatic containers with lattice work sides. Locate your plant so that it is at the same depth in the lattice basket as it was in its pot, then fill in with an aquatic compost, pressing down to firm in around the plant.
Make sure you use special aquatic compost which will release nutrients slowly, preventing nutrients passing into the water, which will in turn encourage algae. Also cover the surface of the compost with a layer of washed gravel to keep the compost in place.
