OK I'll tell you - as well as a small bottle of Essence of Barley Straw to deal with the greening of the pond, I bought two large ready planted baskets of marginal plants for the pond, and some more Water Violet and two Water Soldiers. The ready planted baskets worked out much cheaper than their constituent parts so were a good deal.
They're the two baskets at the far side of the pond.
Then.............. for the front garden I bought a Bergenia 'Overture', Verbascum 'Sierra Sunset' - gorgeous peachy apricot with rusty burgundy centres, and a clump of Camassia leichtlinii Caerulea - everything planted and watered
