    Looks nice but a bit too small I think depending on how many water plants you would like to place in it. A height of 27cm which is less than a school ruler is quite tiny.

    Anything bigger doesn't fit the space I have in mind.
    I already have a fish pond and wildlife ponds just wanted something for a couple of bog type plants that don't suit the other ponds.
    I have ordered it anyway and if it's too small I can always use it somewhere else!!

    I think you could be fine with that then and it should make a nice feature in your garden.

    I think with a few marginals it could look OK after all they only need there feet in the water maybe one of the very tiny water lily's ? I have known people make them in old Belfast sinks so as long as your careful with plant selection I would go for it.

    I think I shall start with the one I have ordered and if it proves too small I can always 'upgrade'  :)
