Planting Instructions

  • Kit comes with everything you need for planting, including basket, fabric basket liner, soil, stones, plant food and the plant.
  • Plant in spring or summer when water is warming up to above 60°F to initiate growth.
  • Unpack components. Remove the fabric bag with soil and bag with stones from the plastic bag.
  • Neatly place the black fabric bag with soil into the basket. With scissors shorten the black fabric bag about 1.5" above the rim of the basket.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Place the stones on top of the basket to weigh it down.
  • 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.
  • 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
