How do you plant a pond plant?

Before we start with the step-by-step pond planting plan, it is good to know how to plant a pond. You can do this by using a pond basket. You fill the empty pond basket with a few layers: pond planting clay, pond planting soil and the desired water plant. You give plenty of water to allow the soil to settle and add soil if necessary. Finally, cover the pond basket with a layer of pond gravel and place it in the desired location in the pond substrate. The advantage of this way is that the plants immediately have nutrition and a stable base thanks to the filled pond basket.

Prevention is better than cure.
