It's where my celandines came from

I'm not bothered, I like them, but they would distress some gardeners

Can you check where it came from and what is likely to be in it?

 

Plants for wildflide pond

Reeds won't grow outside the liner so substitute with a grass or  other plant with reed-like leaves

Have you got a planting shelf within the pond for marginals?  They will overlap the edge by the end of the season. You can grow reed like plants here but avoid phragmites and anything else invasive, they may be in pots but that won't stop them.

Amphibians will just turn up if they're in the area. If you import spawn at this stage there's nothing for it to spread disease to.

I'd recommend visiting a few gardens to see what others have done. You've got plenty of time, water plants can be added through the summer

My most successful establishment was from buying a a couple of pots cheap after they had flowered and planting those. The dried bulbs didn't do so well

Hi Alice, I'd love to see a photo if you can upload one. Start with the tree in the tool bar. I don't know what you do to load from a phone

I've never sown any in the garden Lyn, It's DIY

The first lot I had, years ago, just 6 seeds from a friend, germinated very quickly in a pot and everything is descended from those

Bob is right, I didn't think to mention that, the existing bulbs won't change, only their offspring
