Last year we sank a small half barrel in a small area of our garden planted it up with a water lily, oxygenating plants, and surrounded the whole thing with a bog garden and bog plants, installed a pump and we had three frogs visit in the Summer. This week we came across a couple of mating frogs!!
I am really excited after reading this article, I bought a belfast sink second hand last year and plan to use a tub trug inside it this year to make a mini pond. Now I know what to put in it I just need to find out what plants to put around it and I'll be ready to go! Will the frogs find it even though I live in the middle of a city?
Ele it is amazing but you will find the frogs will discover it in no time, bog plants around the edge look great, good luck.
Help. I need advise on cleaning my garden pond please,the water is always murky evan with my pump going.
Eric I was at RHS Tatton this year and they had a demo on making small ponds: they recommended Barley straw concentrate (liquid). Maybe it's worth a go?
