About this deal
The plants in your pond kit have been chosen especially for their remarkably high quality - some of them even winning the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit. The pond plants will continue to photosynthesise under the ice - producing the oxygen that animals need - as long as they continue to get light.
However, if you want your pond to remain as a water source for animals over the summer or grow plants that can't tolerate a pond drying up completely, you may wish to add water.
If you make a pond in a pot you will need at least one submerged oxygenating plant and one plant that sticks out of the water (an emergent plant). The Aquatic Patio Pond Kit or AquaGarden Mini Pond Kit make it simple to have a small water garden anywhere you can imagine.
Hopefully, following all the tips above will keep your pond healthy but sometimes things can still go wrong.The AquaGarden Mini Pond Kit is also very easy to install; you can have it up and running in just a few hours. When you’re happy with the arrangement of the plants, top up the level of the water to around 2cm – 3cm below the rim of the container.

The Wildlife Gardening Forum has a more in-depth discussion of plants for wildlife ponds and their roles in a pond ecosystem, as well as extra suggestions of plants for larger ponds. To allow amphibians to forage and dragonflies to hunt, add patches of long vegetation next to your pond (on the side that won't shade it) and piles of logs and stones.If you dig a pond it is better to create your own shape and use a flexible pond liner rather than a pre-formed, plastic mould. The lower pond area holds 5 to 7 gallons of water and is a great place for floating plants, a small water lily, or even a few small fish to create a recirculating aquaponics system.
