We suggest taking a “slow and steady” approach to planting your new pond plant to allow the plant to establish itself effectively.
Begin by preparing the plant in its basket (as outlined in the instructions supplied on the kit packaging).
Once you have your plant basket prepared, start out by placing the basket in shallow water (around 1 – 2 inches deep) which will allow the plant to start establishing itself.
As the plant starts to grow and shoots appear it can then be submerged.
Alternatively, set them up submerged in a pot or planter to start whilst they develop, and move into the pond once a little bigger.
Once your plant is fully established, Acorus Calamus will do best in a depth of up to 40cm in your pond.
