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

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

Not sure if different narcissus species can cross but cultivars of the same species will and all seed back to something closer to wild.

I think I'd have the large cultivated ones out, for me they'd spoil the effect.
