Confusion about aquatic plants planting method
We have been lucky enough to have been able to create an artificial pond in our new allotment a few weeks ago and would now like to get some marginal plants to encourage the wildlife.
I've been looking through some guides on how to plant marginal plants but there seems to be conflicting advice. Some sources say to use aquatic baskets filled with soil and topped with gravel, other sources say to just use gravel in the basket and no soil at all. Could anyone recommend which of these is best, or is there no difference really?
I can provide the info of which plants we are looking at if it helps? Thanks in advance for any advice!
