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. The snails are also an aesthetic addition to your Semi Shade 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.

"Looks okay, could not get the wire grid into the pot sadly as it was too large, but the solar fountain is pretty when working esp at late evening when the lights are also working."

"The pond and the plants are great.
Though the solar fountain is of very poor quality. Solar panel is fine but some parts of the fountain cracked even during the assembling process.

"I ordered a fibreglass pond which came with a little solar pond fountain and 6 pond plants. Really good value for the price and everything including the plants, which were sent separately, were very well packaged. This is a brilliant starter pond and a good, manageable size for anyone who doesn't want anything too messy and hard to look after."
