Bog plants pond

Marsh plants purify and filter water in ponds. By placing these grass and reed-like plants, you ensure that the pond is completely furnished. Thanks to their strong root systems, marsh plants grow quickly and root themselves firmly into the pond bottom, from which they draw their nutrition. In addition, marsh plants are hardy. Hardy means that they can survive in cold weather with frost and do not require cover.

Which marsh plants are best to place? In our assortment you will find the most popular and best performing marsh plants. Choose, for example, the hardy yellow iris which has a graceful appearance due to its yellow flowers. With a choice of more than 15 types of bog plants you can decorate your pond entirely to your own taste.

Maintain swamp plants in the pond

Overgrowth with marsh plants requires maintenance so that they continue to do their job properly and do not become feral. In the fall, the biggest pruning takes place and you remove excess growth from the pond. During pruning, you cut away dead parts of the plant. Remaining roots and leaves grow back in the spring because the nutrients remain stored in the roots.

Because of the hardy property of bog plants, covering the pond is not necessary during the winter period. Do you want to prevent falling leaves from entering the pond during the fall? Then place a net over the pond that catches the leaves.

How do you plant the most beautiful marsh plants?

Marsh plants, in addition to their purifying effect, are also placed because they are so suitable as a finish to the pond edge. Right next to the pond edge begins the wet bank, or marsh area, where these plants are placed. This section is where the plants can function best. For marsh plants to root well and stay wet, the soil should consist of wet soil or pond substrate. Just be careful not to place them too deep in the pond, or the bog plants will drown and not survive.

For example, marsh plant water mint, which is about 60 cm high and can be planted in a depth of up to -20 cm. At this depth we recommend placing plants in pond baskets, in order to keep plant growth in check. After filling a pond basket with your favorite marsh plant, simply place it at the appropriate depth in the marsh area.
