Oxygenators and Floating Plants
Oxygenating and Floating plants provide a form of natural control for unsightly blanket weed and algae in your pond. They take away the carbon dioxide that algae feed on and convert it to oxygen. They benefit from being either planted or dropped on top of water. For those that can tolerate deeper conditions, they should be placed in shallower areas and allowed to grow into the deeper area or lowered over time to allow them to adjust. They also provide a wildlife haven for many pollinators, not to mention protection for fish.

Our Packaging and Despatch
All our aquatic plant range is packed to order and shipped in specially designed boxes which have been tried and tested, to ensure they arrive with you in tip top condition. Plants are carefully wrapped in polythene bags before being placed and secured in strong and sturdy boxes - keeping your plants safe both inside and out.

Care is taken when packing to minimise the risk of damage due to the plant being too tall for the box, but sometimes we may have to cut or trim leaves to fit the packaging. Please note our aquatic plants are supplied by specialist growers, if you are ordering multiple pond plants, your order will be held until all plants are in stock so that they can be despatched at the same time.

Our aquatic plants and molluscs are supplied by specialist growers. Please provide your email address, you'll receive up-to-date delivery information direct from the aquatic plant nursery.
