We prune the plant slightly to shape it with a pruning shear. We remove old leaves and dirt. To encourage good growth, we add minerals to the pond water and ensure that the water's hardness level (pH value and calcium to magnesium ratio) is maintained. Plant the marigold in a sunny spot.

The aquatic, Marsh Marigold, is best planted in a pond basket. Line the basket with a piece of jute and add some special pond substrate. Put the Marsh Marigold in the basket and fill with soil. Cover everything with the remaining jute and add a layer of gravel to keep it in place. Place the basket just below the surface or up to 30 cm deep in the pond. If your pond is not shallow enough, you could stand your basket on a pile of stones. Place this plant in full sun.
Marsh Marigold makes an excellent combination plant
The strong Marsh Marigold lightens up the pond in spring with its bright yellow flowers. This early flowering aquatic plant combines well with Pontederia Cordata and Iris Pseudacorus.
Marsh Marigold is an easy growing pond plant that requires minimal maintenance. Cut off its dead leaves in autumn and remove them from the pond. Yearly, in the spring you can add a growth ball to the pond basket. If the clump grows too large by May, you can take the Marsh Marigold out of the pond. Divide the clump into smaller pieces and only plant one piece back inside.
Its flowers signify the fact that Marsh Marigold is part of the buttercup family. Marsh Marigold's beautiful flowers stay well in a vase. This plant grows beautiful brown fruits in Autumn.
