Planting Instructions

  • Unpack all components.
  • Remove the fabric bag with soil and bag with stones from 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. If not, cut the bag back some more.
  • 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.

Good to Know

  • Pond plants generally prefer water temperatures above 60°F to initiate growth

  • Plant in spring to summer as water begins warming

  • Pond plants are essential in creating a healthy ecosystem in your pond, as they provide filtration because their roots absorb nutrients out of the water that might otherwise cause algae, helping to keep the water clear.

  • One plant will cover a 15-foot diameter in about five years.
