Unfortunately we cant plant on the edges of the pond as it goes straight down. We have tied some wood against the side so as to allow frogs etc to escape and also we have a lot of lily pads.
We had (we think) a mink in our pond which killed all our fish (headless bodies on the patio) not very nice. We have found that we also have a giant diving beetle the offspring of which hasbeen killing all our tadpoles, newts and possibly baby fish that survived the massacre. Is there any hope!
Thanks for the information. We have still got our thinking caps on!
