N8 Water’s Edge Plant Collection

The species in this collection will all tolerate flooding once established, and many would grow in the pond itself. Care must be taken to ensure plants are given as much time as possible before flooding of the site occurs.

A minimum of 10 species will be chosen from the species list, and used in equal quantities.

Each species will be individually labelled within the collection.
