How we ship aquatic plants

Here you can find detailed information on how various types of aquatic plants, such as water lilies, lotus flowers, marsh plants and submerged plants are grown and shipped.

Shipments of water lilies

Water lilies are shipped bare-root and are already vegetative, ready to bloom during the current year. The water lilies are grown by us in large tubs already placed in large lakes at the same depth as you will place them in your pond. In this way the plants you will receive will not be affected because they are taken from an environment similar to the one in which you will place them!

When you receive the water lilies you will have to pot them up as explained in the Guide to Growing Aquatic Plants.

The size of the water lilies obviously varies depending on the season. For example, in March the plants are in the early stages of vegetation, while in summer the plants will be more vigorous, but this does not affect the final result you will have in your pond!

Shipments of lotus flowers

Lotus flowers are shipped in rhizome form (just at the beginning of vegetation) from March to May.

Shipments of marsh plants

Marsh plants are shipped in the manner indicated in the information sheets for each plant. In particular, they are shipped either bare-root, or with a clod of soil, or in a square basket.

As explained in the case of water lilies, we have identified the best possible cultivation and shipping methods to ensure that the plants take root. For example, plants such as Pontederia cordata do not make sense to send them in baskets because they are very vigorous plants and cannot stay more than 3 months in small baskets, so bare-root is the best way so far. On the other hand, plants such as Equisetum palustris cannot be sent bare-root because they are not rhizomatous plants and therefore, must be sent in small baskets, which must obviously be removed when they reach their destination and then the plants must be placed in larger baskets.

Shipments of submerged oxygenating plants

Submerged oxygenating plants are shipped in bunches of about ten stems, or even many more, depending on the size of the plants. Here is an example of a bunch of submerged oxygenating plants (Elodea canadensis).
