Living under a rock?

If you’ve recently been living under a rock, you may not have seen the information about the launch of the Defra ‘Be Plant Wise‘ campaign.

The message is: Watch out for those alien pond plants!

If you’re wondering what to do about getting native plants for your garden ponds, see our advice here, which is to get plants from the wild – but remember you need landowner permission to collect common plants – and never collect in protected areas and nature reserves. A number of rarer plants are specially protected.

    There are also a couple of good websites devoted to selling native British plant species. In particular, naturescape

    http://www.naturescape.co.uk/

    sells a wide range of native pond / marginal plants.
