Read the article on tin bath water gardens and found it really helpful. I made one my self but had no advise and now know how to make it better. Mine has yucky gunge all over it and I am about to clean it out and now know how to keep it better and even though its a small bath it has done well considering my lack of knowledge. Will be off to find the right compost for a start and water baskets and an aerating plant to sweeten up the water. Just need to find a good water garden supplier near me. Just glad I found this article If any one knows of a good water garden centre near Coventry please let me know.

But how to best deal with mosquito larvae with standing water being a haven for them?
Hopefully an aquatic predator will take up residence at some point and help with the problem.
one of the best i know is Blooms along the A45 going south, take the Dunchurch turn and go from there. Been a year or two since ive been in but they used to have just about everything. The down side ? you might well have to negotiate the toll bar road works, depending where you live, so take a drink and some lunch
