Good sources for pond plants

Hi, I'd love some recommendations of places that you've bought water/pond plants from.

I'm looking to find a good online source that's not too expensive.

I'm hoping for the "Secret Gardening Club" of the pond world, if it exists!

Thanks

    Not sure there is one  :D
    Puddleplants is very good - lots of people on the forum use them. 
    I've also used another one, but I can't remember the name. Hopeless mare. I'll have a look....

    Found it - Waterside Nursery  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    A recommendation here for Puddleplants https://www.puddleplants.co.uk/

    Great plants and great service 👍

    I think the biggest problem just now might be getting plants that are in stock.
    It's been a recurring theme this year with all sorts of nurseries due to the current situation,  unfortunately.  :/

    Devon Pond Plants are my favoured source. Have also used Puddleplants occasionally.

    I used Devon Pond Plants, sold as bare roots. Very good prices and quality.

    I did buy from Waterside Nursery a couple of years ago and despite all their accolades the plants were very disappointing.
    The plants from Puddle Plants were excellent
