Ponds, Plants and More
sells the pond plants and pond supplies that usually aren't found in your local garden center or do-it-yourself megastore. We specialize specifically in (aquatic) pond plants - no "terrestrial" bedding plants here. In other words....you'll never find standard vegetable or bedding plants, such as; marigolds or tomato plants sold here.
We are a privately-owned, family-oriented business, and have had an online presence since 1999. The business has grown in size every year. You can be assured, we will be here for you for many years to come.
Even though he has a background in residential construction, the owner has been involved in growing plants since his early pre-school days. The pondkeeping hobby was not available to him back then, but he certainly enjoyed his vegetable gardens in those early years. He was proud of the meticulously-kept, weed-free gardens he had year after year.
He started a small greenhouse business while he was in his early twenties. He knew how to grow the plants, but (looking ahead to the future) wanted to get a head-start on the administrative side of the business. Little did he know back then, that the internet was going to play such an important role in his (future) life.
The owner's specific interest in "pond" plants began when he was introduced to them in 1982, while working at his construction business....and there were so few of them back then. He had to rebuild a customer's waterfall feature. After the job was completed, he was given the difficult task of finding some nice plants that would grow in the water at the base of the falls. Here in western PA, there were little to choose from, aside from the common cattail and Cyperus alternifolius (the standard Umbrella Palm). Back then, Umbrella Palm was used solely as a houseplant here in the north. The search was on!!
As we said, we've had an internet presence since 1999. The website you are viewing now, is in its second incarnation, as we have finally outgrown our old site. Feel free to look over our extensive list of pond plants. You'll find that we have one of the largest pond plant selections on the internet. While you are here....please take a moment to look at the large volume of pond supplies and Garden Giftware we have to offer as well.
Since its inception, our website was designed with security in mind, and for its ease of use.
- We have NEVER had a breach of security.
- Our customer service is second to none!!
- We treat our customers as we like to be treated.
- We receive quite a bit of email and every email we answer, is answered with a personal touch. After all, we wouldn't be here without you!
