Pond Plants- where do you get yours?

My pond is almost ready to be planted up, but I've no idea where it's best to get plants from, as my local garden centres have virtually nothing to offer.

The pond is quite small and will have one goldie in it (an existing pet), but will be for all wildlife.

It gets quite a bit of sun.

What's a good online site?

Is watersidenursery.co.uk good?

Many thanks 🙏🏻

    Got all mine from eBay, cheap n cheerful, they soon grew on, I'm pulling it out by the bin full now.

    Another recommendation for Puddleplants here 💕 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Don’t know where exactly you are in North London but Wildwoods at Enfield has a great selection.  There are about 10 nurseries and garden centres on the same stretch of road (it’s called Crews Hill).  Very worth a visit.

    Hello all, sorry about the radio silence...combination of new job and end of term chaos!

    I went with Puddle Plants, in the end and they were amazing! Thanks.
    Packaged beautifully and even gave me some extras because the lilies I had ordered weren't as lush as they had wanted.
    Fantastic communication too.
    I'd definitely use them again.

    Thanks @KeenOnGreen I'll look them up next time I'm up that way. I've been to Thompons in Crews Hill many times, for landscaping supplies, so know that stretch well.
