Wildlife pond without liner

Posted: 13/04/2015 at 06:52

You don't need heavy boulders - we've used turf to cover the edges of the pond liner and allow it to grow longer around the pond to provide the frogs etc with some cover to hide in.  This is the day the turves were laid

And this is a couple of months later, with baskets of native plants getting established in the pond.

Good morning all

A lovely morning here - a peachy sunrise and a blue sky - birds singing, doves cooing and the grass sparkling with overnight raindrops   Chilly tho' ... 2.6C at the moment.

Yvie DM = Daily Mail - not a paper I buy , but the website can cause amusement in this household!

I did send something via dove, but cant remember what. Was it a buddleja? I think nut hsd roscoea to pass on to Michael? Wonder what happened to him?

I certainly passed on a buddleja and a Molly (and some aquilegias) the former and the latter were from Fidget, can't remember who the Molly was from

Dove, does your dicentra not like shade?  I was planning to buy a white one for a pretty shady spot, but you've made me think again... 

I thought it would so I'm not sure what went wrong - maybe it needed to be a bit bigger before I planted it out ...... we shall see

According to the DM website we're in for a three month heatwave   I'm not going to put money on it

Celandine trouble

Posted: 12/04/2015 at 20:13

The nice thing about celandine (apart from their lovely sunny faces in the spring) is that they die down in the summer and don't reappear again until next year
