This data set contains the survival of Spartina anglica seedlings (with different ages), the survival, shoot numbers, plant height and biomass of S. anglica tussocks of a field mega-marsh organ marsh experiment that been carried out in Perkpolder, the Netherlands in 2016 and 2018. This study investigated the impact of surface drainage and elevation relative to mean sea-level on i) the survival of S. anglica seedlings from three different age classes: 1-year, 3-month and 1-week; and ii) the growth performance of mature S. anglica marsh tussocks.
