Frequently asked questions about pond baskets

Pond Advice

A pond basket is a special tool for placing aquatic plants in an optimal nutrient medium. The small holes in the basket allow water to flow in while holding the nutrient medium. This ensures that the plant receives all the essential nutrition it needs for healthy growth and flowering.

A pond basket prevents plants from overgrowing, ensures they receive proper nutrition and makes it easy to position plants at the proper depth in the pond. It also offers flexibility, allowing plants, including the basket, to be easily moved, such as to a deeper area in winter for frost protection.

There is a wide range of shapes and sizes of pond baskets, ranging from 19×19 cm square baskets to larger 35×35 cm versions. Kidney-shaped and round versions are also available, designed to meet different aesthetic and functional needs of a pond.

It is crucial to place pond plants at the recommended depth as stated on the package. When placed at the proper depth, they will ensure optimal growth and flowering. Using the right combination of pond soil, clay and nutrients in the basket will also contribute to healthier plant growth.

Pond baskets are available from Vdvelde.com in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can also be combined with special floating rings to create a floating plant island, which is a unique and attractive addition to any pond. You can buy five pond baskets from as little as 9.95.

Plant Baskets

Pond baskets come in different shapes and sizes. Pond baskets are used to place plants not only on the edges of the pond, but also in the middle of the pond, for example. Furthermore, pond baskets keep aquatic plants in check by preventing their roots from spreading. Using a special floating ring in combination with a pond basket, you can even create a floating plant island. Put the plant in the pond basket in special aquatic plant soil and clay along with a nutrient tablet and you have the ideal soil for aquatic plants.

Pond plant baskets

When you buy pond plants from us, they come with pond basket, clay, food and cover gravel (a so-called potting set). This of course with the exception of species that do not need a basket such as floating plants. Each potting set includes the maximum number of plants. You can also choose to purchase a mini pond plant set. This potting set with 4 different, matched plants is an asset to any pond. In addition to pond plants in baskets, there is also a large selection of oxygen plants in baskets.

Pond Basket

A pond basket is used to put aquatic plants in a good nutrient medium. The pond basket is filled with clay, soil and nutrients and is great for growing healthy, strong aquatic plants. Because of the small holes in the basket, it allows water to pass through to the inside, but holds the proper nutrient soil. This gives the plant all the nutrition it needs.

Pond planting

When planting a pond, pond plant baskets are ideal because they provide a controlled and stable environment in which aquatic plants can thrive. These baskets keep essential components such as substrate, clay, soil and nutrients neatly together, which is essential for the healthy growth of the plants. They also help keep roots in place, allowing plants to become well established in the pond and maximize their beauty and functionality in the aquatic ecosystem.
