Create your Wildlife Friendly Pond in a Trough in 3 easy steps

Setting up your Pond in a trough is effortless and can be done anywhere in your garden, however most of the flowers in the Wildlife Friendly set thrive best in the sun. The Pond in a trough is portable so you can move it around with no problem!

Step 1: Fill your placeholder pots about 2/3rds with the gravel provided. You can add or remove gravel later to raise or lower your plants so that they sit correctly in the water.

Step 2: Fill the trough with water to about 2/3rds of the way - you can adjust this again later as desired.

Step 3: Place your plants in the placehold pots and drop into the trough where desired. Try to keep the top of the pot just below the surface of the water with no more than 2 inches of the plant submerged.

You can then adjust the water level and the gravel in placeholder pots until you are happy.

Optional Extras for Pond in a Trough 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. The snails are also an aesthetic addition to your Wildlife Friendly Pond in a Pot.

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. The selection chosen for you will be based on your pond and availability.
