Abbey Aquatics & Reptiles, Pond department

The pond fish and plant area has now opened, but due to the continued cold weather stocks of fish and plants are limited, as the weather improves so will our selections.
All the plants that we sell here at Abbey Aquatics are English nursery grown,

this means that some of our plants may be a few pennies more than an imported plant; but the quality of our plants is exceptional.

Marginal Plants

our marginal plants are sold in 1ltr & 3ltr pots
we have found these sizes to be the most manageable, with a well started plant.
All the plants come with a planting tag tell you exactly how to care for your new plant
and to enable you to choose the most suitable plant.

 Water Lilies

Our Lilies are sold in 3ltr pots
and come with a colour coded handle and bed card telling you variety, plant depth, flowering period and spread.

Most lilies prefer full sun and still water, so are not suited to being placed by a fountain where water can splash the leaves.

 Water hawthorn

 Deep water aquatics

These plants are a good alternative to lilies as they are more tolerant to shade Nymphoides and Aponogeton are also good alternatives for the small pond

 Horn wort

 Oxygenating plants

Oxygenating plants photosynthesis under water creating oxygen which can dissolve into the water, this then helps both the animal life and the bacteria that helps to keep the pond clear.
Our oxygenating plants are sold both as bunches and pots


 Moisture loving plants

These plants are excellent for boggy areas near ponds or other damp areas of the garden.

Please note, many other pond plants are also suitable for areas of damp soil or bog gardens, look for ones that say minimum planting depth is zero.



 Floating plants

Floating plants provide surface cover for fish and help to prevent the growth of algae
