Feed Your Plants Too!

Just like indoor plants and aquarium plants, pond plants also need nutrients and trace elements for healthy and thriving growth. With the help of fertiliser balls ( JBL FloraPond ), which you press into the root area of the pond plants (best directly after the purchase), you provide all kinds of root forming marsh and aquatic plants with a long-lasting supply of nutrients, minerals and trace elements.

Professional tip

If possible, remove all dying leaves! Dead organic matter, such as plant leaves, release the nutrients which were absorbed during its lifetime, and thus promote algae growth! Regular pruning of the marsh plants in autumn before the garden pond’s dormancy is also a nutrient reducing measure. But leave about 10 % of the marsh plant’s stem above the water surface. They serve as hibernation places for many insects.
