Pond in a Pot

Pond in a Pot! 

Container ponds are easy to make and kids will love getting wet and muddy, especially on a hot summer’s day. They’ll also attract birds and insects, so should provide some quiet wildlife-watching time too.


Use a large, shallow container with no drainage holes, and add a selection of pond and marginal plants, plus an oxygenator to help keep the water clear. Site it in a little shade, rather than in full sun and keep the water topped up.
