Our native oxygenating plants are a vital addition to any pond or stream. They remove carbon dioxide from the water and give out oxygen which is necessary for fish and amphibians and reduced algal growth.
Plants should be introduced to the pond in spring and one best ‘seeded’ by use of weighted jute bags – these break down after a period leaving the plants to root into the soil. We would recommend a rate of 2 – 5 plants per 1m². Most species once established will persist but generally die back in autumn and winter.
Species include – Potamogetan natans, Ranunculus aquatills, Ceratophyllum demersum.
