Garden Ponds and Plants
Most pond plants are easy to grow and require little maintenance other than the occasional tidy up to remove tired-looking foliage or fading flower heads.
However, for a pond to be relatively easy to look after you have to choose varieties that suit the size of the pond and the depth of the water. You also need to bear in mind how the plants will combine together if you want to achieve an attractive looking water feature for most of the year.
If you have a pond with a surface area of around 5m² and you choose the right combination of plants, the pond can be virtually self-sustaining. Aim to cover at least one-third of the surface area with floating plants to cut down the amount of sunlight penetrating the water.
Floating leaves, such as waterlily pads, not only provide shade and hiding places for young fish, but also prevent the growth of algae that can turn the water a murky shade of green.
