Planting+

It would be best to plant the pond plant Sparganium erectum in a pond basket. Cover the base of the basket with a piece of sackcloth and fill it with special pond compost. Place the branched bur-reed in the basket and fill with soil. Cover everything with the remaining sackcloth and finish with a layer of gravel. Place the basket approximately 10-30 cm deep in the pond. If there is no shallow waterside section in your pond, you should place the basket on a stack of stones. Place this pond plant in full sun or partial shade.
