Spring wildlife gardening and pond updates :)

Posted: 16/05/2014 at 13:36

Just been gazing in the pond again - three frogs there today - one biggish and two that look like last year's froglets.  They look so happy - if a frog can look happy - or is that the reflection of my big grin that I can see in the water

Hi Dave, 

Can you post a few pics of your garden so we can get some idea of your options.  To post a pic on here click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your posts, and follow the instructions.  Unfortunately it doesn't work for phones .... yet

Every so often I feel a little lost with my garden - then I take time to watch nature and how the birds and insects, and now the amphibians too are enjoying it.  It's so much better than what's on the tv.

How to improve drainage

Posted: 16/05/2014 at 12:17

Hi Denno

I'd use an unglazed terracotta pot (old fashioned flower pot type) with a bit of broken pot over the hole in the bottom - then I'd mix 2 parts of John Innes No 3 loam-based compost with one part of horticultural grit.  

That should keep your marjoram happy.
