OUT IN THE GARDEN: Creating an interesting pond
Following my marching orders from my nearest and dearest to tidy the pond just over a month ago I feel now I’m ready to start on stage two.
I remember the thought of tidying the pond was worse than the actual physical work involved. However a month on from that task I now want to add to the pond plants and create a little bit of interest with some fish in the pond. My little dog Teddy is going to have a fit when he sees what I have in mind.
Summer is definitely on its way and the water temperature is rising steadily from week to week in line with the amount of daylight we are receiving. The downside to this is that algae and weed can quickly thrive and take hold of the pond, turning it into thick green goo.
