Cheerful pond

A yellow wetland plant. It adds a cheerful touch to our pond. The yellow marsh marigold (Caltha palustris) starts showing off its golden yellow colours in early spring. The aquatic plant is a waterside and marsh plant. We can plant the plant along the edge (bank) of our pond. Or we can plant the plant up to 40 cm deep in the pond. We can plant the marigold all year round. The flower blooms in the spring.
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.
For a golden pond!

Planting

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.

Care

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.

Extra

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.
