They are ideal for places near to patio or decking areas, where their sweet aroma can be appreciated. The plants can be positioned around the perimeter of a pond or on levelled shelves for original and attractive exposure. Marginal plants should be planted in boggy ground or shallow water for optimal growth results. Help to conserve our native British flora by planting with our native plant range. These marginal pond plants grow naturally in the shallow water at the edge of the pond and are ideal for wildlife ponds or water features. As well as their attractive foliage and flowers, they provide a natural habitat for small pond creatures. The rafting varieties, such as the Water Forget-me-not, Brooklime, and Water Mint, spread out in small floating rafts, giving cover to baby fish and tadpoles. The tall emergent plants are essential for dragonflies and damsalfly nymphs to climb out of the water and transform into adults, and waterfowl like to nest among dense reeds and rushes. All plants contribute to the ecological haven of a natural pond, benefiting wildlife from tiny pond insects to mammals that like to visit for a drink.

Perennials are flowering plants which grow and bloom over the spring and summer and then die back every autumn and winter. They typically grow structures that allow them to adapt to living from one year to the next through a form of vegetative reproduction rather than seeding. Perennial plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion, capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate ground and surface water, and outcompete weeds. They grow very well in conditions that are poor in resources due to their earlier emergence in the spring, and the development of larger root systems which can access water and soil nutrients deeper in the soil.

Mulched bark spread around the plants will prevent the soil from drying out whilst protecting the roots from excessive heat. This layer will change over time in fresh humus, meaning that using artificial fertilizers is not necessary. If the soil conditions provided are right, they can be grown in half to full sun too. Ferns have impressed with their simplicity and elegance for a long time. They bring life to dark corners of the garden, where most other plants would fail. In open areas, ferns look best in rock gardens and under trees, perfectly complementing its undergrowth.
