Water plants

Water plants bring your pond to life

Statistics show that almost one in six gardens have a pond. Now you can make your pond a treat for the eyes and a feast for the soul.

Pond distribution: 

You can divide your pond into five vegetation zones according to the pond’s depth.

Floating plants provide surface cover.

Water plants are not only beautiful to look at; they also promote the biological balance of your pond. Your water garden also needs care and fertilisation. Take a look at our Velda range on www.velda.com.

The perfect place to start your pond is at the bottom.

Substrate:
Pond substrate promotes the optimal development of a stable pond environment and its microorganisms.

Soil:
Each plant has specific soil requirements.
Pond soil is a universal nutrient medium for all pond plants.
This mix of peat, clay and sand ensures excellent growth and flowering.
Lelite is the perfect nutrient medium for all water lilies.
It prevents suffocation of the roots.

Gravel:

Pond gravel prevents the pond soil from washing away. The gravel contains no harmful substances or silicas. We also stock a range of pond baskets.
Pond baskets stop the roots from becoming invasive. The basket should be in a stable position. It is easy to fill the floating plant baskets with marsh plants and to place them at any location on the surface.
