Attracting pond life

If you don't have longer grass or plants up to the edge of at least part of the pond, any creatures leaving the water are going to be picked off by predators as soon as they emerge.

Coolest night here for a good while ... down to 6.4C and only up to 6.7C now.

Our hedgehogs had been absent for three nights on the trot, but must've turned up last night but didn't clear their plate ... only ate about half of their Sheba chicken pouch.  

Is it too late to plant colchiums?

Plant them now and you'll get leaves in the spring and flowers next autumn.  You could put them in pots and plant them out when the leaves begin to die down.

Clarington says:... so I might eventually get hens. I think if I buy another I'll buy one with the run built in. ;)
See original post

You can actually order the whole kit and caboodle all together, so that it all comes complete with the chickens ... you could order yourself a poultry fait accompli.

Good morning all 

Hosta, what about keeping them in the hot tunnel in pots and moving them out to the terrace only once they're in bud?

Hello Helen 

Can you post some photos of your pond and it's surroundings to give us some clues please? 

To upload photos start with the camera icon ... If they don't appear try reducing the size - that usually works.
