Heart Shaped Houttuynia - Houttuynia cordata 'Plena'

The Orange Peel Plant features attractive yellow spiked flowers with white petals at their base. The bright yellow and white appearance and the unique heart-shaped foliage creates a beautiful effect. The orange scented leaves will add a pleasant aroma to your garden.

Common Cotton Grass - Eriophorum Angustifolium

This plant got it's name of "Cotton Grass" from the unique hairy texture of the white flowers. The stunning white flowers bloom in summer and will offer a dramatic contrast to darker foliage.

Golden Creeping Jenny - Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'

The Golden Creeping Jenny is wonderful for topping your Pond in a Pot with its small golden green leaves and spreading coverage reaching a maximum of 1m. Striking cup shaped yellow flowers bloom across the Creeping Jenny in Summer which is a vigorous plant and easy to grow.

Water forget-me-not - Myosotis Scorpioides.

The dainty sky-blue flowers have a distinctive central yellow eye in summer to autumn. They can reach up to 50cm in height, and their spread can extend up to 50cm. Myosotis Scorpioides makes the perfect plant for your Pond in a Pot collection.

Carnation Grass Carex Panicea

Add some slender blue/green foliage and leaning stems to your Pond in a Pot with the Carex Panicea, ideal for small ponds and water features. Carnation Grass is semi-evergreen meaning that the plant foliage will remain green throughout mild winters.

Water Hawthorn Aponogeton Distachyus.

Flat green glossy leaves hold up forked racemes of small, fragrant, white flowers with purple anthers in this exotic plant which will give a beautiful and wildlife friendly surface to your Pond in a Pot. The leaves which can spread up to 1m also serve to reduce algae growth by giving further shade to the water beneath.

Optional Extras for Pond in a Pot Maintenance

Use the Ramshorn Snail to maintain your Pond in a Pot by cleverly eating away the algae from the sides of you planter without affecting or damaging the chosen plant life inside.

Additional recommended plants include the charming Frogbit Hydrocharis morsus-ranae in a specially offered 5 pack. This ideal plant requires no maintenance and will cleverly cover the top of your Pond in a Pots water surface with lovely round leaves and summer blooms.

A brilliant choice for extra care for your Pond in a Pot is the addition of Oxygenating plants, which you can add here in a native variation of five bunches. Oxygenating plants photosynthesise underwater with the resulting oxygen dispersing into the water, this encourages bacteria which help to keep the water clear.

Why Solar Power?

Solar power has made it even easier to run a water fountain in your garden without the need for an outside power supply. Some of the benefits of a solar powered water feature include:

 The only requirement is that the solar panel is placed in a sunny area. Many solar water fountains now come with built-in rechargeable batteries that store energy so the fountain will still work when the sun doesn’t come out.

  • These units are much quicker and easier to install than mains powered features. There is no need to call out an electrician, no need to dig or lay cables, just choose a sunny spot and away you go.

  • You will have more versatility in the placement of your fountain than a mains powered option. If you have a specific place you’d like your fountain and it’s not near your house (for mains power) then solar is the best option.

  • Solar energy is better for the environment as it is a sustainable and renewable source of power.

  • Generally, solar-powered water fountains are lower voltage so could be considered safer than mains electricity if you have children playing nearby.
