My pond (2.6 metre x 1.8 metres x 61cm at its deepest) as you well know is now installed and the pump is running happily. I was told by the lovely people who supplied the pond (pump, and my two fish who they even looked after over the winter til the pond was installed - what service!) That plants would start to be available from March onwards.
I'm trying to come up with native plant ideas that will add colour and height to the pond. Does anyone have any suggestions? We don't have much of a design style in the garden so the plants don't need to conform to any modern / classic styles!
