FLOATING PLANT ISLANDS
No plant shelves on your pond? No problem! How to create shade and interest with pond plants, without risk of the fish eating/digging up your plants too. These floating planters by PondXpert offer a unique solution. They are kept suspended on the surface by a polystyrene ring/square. The fabric membrane which contains the soil hangs under the surface, allowing water to keep the soil wet without clouding up the pond. This makes them perfect for marginal plants - the roots are kept wet and the foliage is always above the water surface.
We have a blog entry dedicated for these fantastic floating islands here! Check it out for everything you need to know about planting one of these up.
