You ought to check out a nursery that has pond plants, just call around, you will get the best deal by getting it in bulk. I know plants are also sold at home depot if you want water lily or some of those.
These bags were kind of small and more for aquarium use, in my opinion. It was Pondcare aquatic plant soil. You could use fluorite from a petstore (kind of expensive) if you had a pond too, just be sure to wash it off, as it clouds the water if you don't. I'm sure that and gravel is more than sufficient for plants.
We also use sand blasting sand in our tanks, and that stuff is exceptionally inexpensive. The stuff MacFan suggested I buy was great, it is called Black Beauty sand blasting sand, from somewhere near downtown Dallas at a welding supply shop. Its $14 for 100 lbs of the stuff. Its the size of a bag of concrete, plenty for a small pond or several tanks. I know plants are also sold at home depot if you want water lily or some of those.
