Planting Instructions

  • Spring to summer is a good time to plant, as the water is warming up the plants should establish well. Pond plants generally prefer water temperatures above 60°F to initiate growth. Our kit comes with everything needed; basket, fabric basket liner, soil, stones, plant food and the plant.
  • To grow follow the following steps:
  • 1. Unpack the box of all components.
  • 2. Remove the fabric bag with soil and bag with stones from the plastic bag.
  • 3. Neatly place the black fabric bag with soil into the basket.
  • 4. With scissors shorten the black fabric bag about 1.5" above the rim of the basket.
  • 5. Add the plant food tabs by pushing them into the clay. Remove the root from its package, with the sphagnum moss and all, and plant it in the center of the basket. Leave the tips slightly exposed.
  • 6. Fold the fabric bag back over onto the top of the soil. This should leave an opening in the middle for the plant to grow. If not, cut the bag back some more.
  • 7. Place the stones on top of the basket to weigh it down.
  • 8. Before placing the basket into the pond, water it heavily several times to settle and solidify the soil. It's best to do this several times.
  • 9. Submerge the entire basket into the pond, about a foot at a time, until you have it at the location of your choice.

Continuing Care

  • To make your pond look natural and balanced, it is usually best to choose a variety of plants, instead of three of the same variety for example.
