Tips for creating a beautiful and thriving container water garden:
Making sense of planting information
The sheer diversity of different pond plants can be overwhelming. However, it should not prevent you from making the right plant choice. To ensure successful water gardening, spend time getting acquainted with the specific requirements of each plant you're interested in purchasing. Make sure the plants you select share similar planting requirements to simplify plant care and maintenance.
Factors to consider before making your plant selection:
Putting it all together with a natural planting scheme
To create a natural-looking container water garden, position plants in strategic locations. Incorporate the notion of foreground, midground, and background to the proposed container water garden. Place shorter plants near the edge and then place medium height plants and then taller plants in gradual succession for a visually appealing planting scheme. For example, use floating plants and shorter marginal plants as foreground plants. Use taller marginal plants and grasses to fill the midground or background of your container water garden.
Most aquatic plants grow aggressively, and throughout last summer and fall your plants may have grown beyond the limits of their containers. Learn how to repot your pond plants to help keep them healthy.
