10a. Potting and Propagation - Potting Containers

Mesh Baskets

Mesh basket planting is very popular in Europe. Many believe it is the best method for the fastest propagation of aquatic plants. Mesh baskets allow roots to spread outside the pot and absorb added nutrients from silt and debris that builds up on the pond bottom. In addition they allow better gas exchange within the soil. Bonded padding must be used to line baskets or pots with holes to prevent soil from escaping while allowing the roots to take hold. These non-toxic synthetic materials last much longer and are more permeable.

Solid Potting Containers

These all black pots are great for general purpose potting of all water garden plants from marginals to lotus. Sturdy and durable, these pots support the addition of gravel and other weights and will last for years. These 'no-holes' containers keep soil in the pot and off the floor of the pond and are perfect for planting and confining oxygenating species.

For container gardeners, we offer two styles of whiskey barrel liners, one with straight sides and one with a spout. The handy 25 gallon Filter Container is great for submersible filers or pumps to keep large debris for clogging the intake.
