Allium Schoenoprasum is an attractive marginal that flowers prolifically. Also known as Chives, it prefers damp ground rather than being in the pond and produces grass-like, tubular mid-green leaves with pretty rose-pink flowers.

Marginal plants basically finish a pond. Typically a pond should be designed with a shelf around the edge so that the pots can be placed on it with the top of the pots submerged as this prevents unwanted weeds growing in the damp soil on the surface. The shelf can be filled with clean gravel so the pots can be easily pushed into it which allows roots to break through so removing them is not required. The gravel also encourages the useful cleaning bacteria that help prevent algae growth and can be arranged to allow water dwelling creatures, such as frogs and newts to climb out.
