My husband bought me a water pond kit for Mother's day and we have it installed.

It is waiting for some plants and fish.

I need a book, because I don't know anything about water gardens.

I want some of that umbrella papyrus and a blue water lily if I can.

I am in Georgia.  Anyone know of a good book for a beginner that has the pond but nothing in it?

Beginners:

-Ortho's All about Water Gardening (my fav newbie gardener book series)

-The Complete Pond Builder by Helen Nash

These are my beginner books.  I'm still a beginner (just reading about water gardeing - no pond yet) but they helped.
