Welcome to Devon Pond Plants

My small nursery specialises in plants for ponds, watersides and other damp places. I can send plants through regular first class mail at the appropriate time of year or plants can be collected from the nursery at any time by prior appointment. The nursery is not open at regular times to the general public but I would be pleased to accept visitors with prior notice. If you do arrange a visit there is no charge and absolutely no obligation to buy anything.

I am always happy to give free advice by email or telephone on the suitability of plants for your particular situation. Many websites offer completely unsuitable and invasive species, which can be a nightmare to control, especially if they escape into the wild environment. I offer an especially wide range of native plants for wild areas or situations where escape into the general environment is more likely. I can give the best advice if approached before the pond is completed – many times I could have helped to avoid common mistakes if asked sooner.


Please do not confuse my plants with "plug plants" commonly offered, or indeed the shreds of plant material often sold mail order. My plants are well established over wintered plants, which are fully acclimatised to outdoor conditions, not forced on under ideal greenhouse conditions when they can struggle to grow, often taking another full season before flowering.

Plants are available in many sizes; my standard size for mail order is a plant that would normally fill a one litre pot, de-potted and with excess soil removed. (Plants can be root washed if requested). Since damp soil is heavy this reduces the postage cost considerably. These plants will grow away quickly and usually flower the same year if purchased at least six weeks before the onset of the usual flowering period. Alternatively a plant rooted in a 9cm pot (or larger) can be posted on request, please note postage costs will be considerably higher. A full range of potted sizes is available at the nursery and large specimen plants can be purchased for use in display gardens, shows etc.

For an exact description of what to expect, please see the About Us page; “What will I get for my money”.

I also offer a service to trade, landscapers and private individuals planning larger schemes. Detailed planting plans can be supplied at a modest charge. Many such schemes have been carried out and references from happy customers are available on request. I REGRET THAT I AM UNABLE TO PRODUCE DETAILED PLANS DURING MY BUSIEST PERIOD, EARLY MARCH TO MID MAY.
