Wildlife Pond

Post by waggy1 » Mon Oct 07, 2013 8:38 pm

I Installed a small pond on Saturday for wildlife, not fish. Although I've seen bigger puddles, and describing it as a pond might might be pushing it a bit. It is raised from the patio so my other half can get close with the wheelchair. We bought the rigid liner off Ebay for £23, including delivery and planted it up with a few plants. No froggy yet as we don't want to overcrowd the snail ;0)

Nice, but I would make it a bit bigger. Well uneless its a very small garden. You could plant a Nymphaea pygmea Helvola in a small pond. Or an Aponogeton distachyos wich flowers during the cooler times of the year.
