Advice needed for planting in shallow wildlife pond
I am in the process of creating a small wildlife pond. I have done some research and I have discovered that the depth of the pond should be no more than 30cm to benefit wildlife.
My pond is pretty small so a lot of it will only be around 10cm deep or so.
Now, my gardening skills and knowledge is practically zero so I need some help.
Will it be possible for me to get plants that will grow in depths of around 10-15 cm?
I was hoping to put some oxygenators in the pond too.
I have added some photos, any advice or general comments would be much appreciated.
I am particularly worried about trapping hedgehogs and other wildlife, so if you think my sides are too steep etc. Please let me know
Thanks very much!
