lol @ people moaning about oaks.. if I had one, above about 2 feet!!! I'd be downright outraged.. These days with everyone wanting to be so 'clean' with their gardens, we have to save all the 'big' ecosystems we can.. Much as I hate it, queen wasps are 'saved' from the greenhouse, ie, 3 litre bottle of pop bottle with no bottom (excellent cloche btw) and a random seed packet to hold the end while removing to the door. Wasps are a pain in autumn no doubt, but for most of summer them little girls do an excellent job on caterpillars and even aphids, I've seen them gathering a load up in their jaws and forelegs and flying off.. I'm still planning a pond, got to 'float' it past the missus though!! Loads of frogs and newts here, find them all the time in the garden so hopefully will have a quick transition to fully functional.. Only worry I have is it will be full south facing sun throughout summer It will however be about 14ft by 6 ft, and probably 3-4ft deep.. going to be uber!!!
