Container ponds - Create your own pond in a pot

Container ponds - Create your own pond in a pot

People often think they need a big space to have a pond in their garden. It is possible to make a mini pond in any garden by using a pot or container. Not only do they make a nice water feature they are extremely beneficial to wildlife.
The last century has seen a decline in ponds by 70% and yet ponds are the best way to attract wildlife into your garden. Even a small container pond is great for birds, mammals and insects.
Containers
Ponds can be created in old galvanised wash tubs, belfast sinks and even garden pots. I have my own mini pond on my decking area which is in an old metal firebucket.

Pond in a Pot plant packs
We are now offering 'Pond in a pot plant packs' where all you need is a suitable pot or container and you can create your own water feature and space for wildlife. We also provide our plants plastic free in biodegradable pots making them even more environmentally friendly.

Check out how to create a pond in a pot with our 'Container Ponds' video on youtube.
