If you feed ponds, They will go mad, believe me!  You want nutrient rich soil and not nutrient rich water.

They need Oxygen and very low nutrients that is it ( a bit of other ponds water will establish this and they will come.0 but they need Oxygen plants to do this.

TOO much nutrients is bad. 

Depending on the base liner then Waterproof clay is the best option.

Dont try and force Nature. Just try and help it.

Hostafan1. Turmeric and black pepper! 

Dog forbid you try Bicarb and lemon with ACV? 

Forgive me I'm just here for the jokes! I do hope VERNUN perks up when I'm away???

Believe me you need VERDUN. (thanks Mate.)

Did not intend to steal your post.

Apologies again. I'll try and help after I read through again.

There are different positions to take Aspirin apparently SGL. My OH prefers standing up with a glass of water (there are others positions without water, apparently)  but Lyn thinks i'm not happy with this? 

Just asked OH! 

Apparently on all fours with face down and a aspirin between her knees, is the best relief for a headache! Apparently gardening is good for you and she enjoyed watering my new seedlings while not losing the true drug that is good to plants.

They are getting a bit leggy so need putting outside to harden off as it's going to snow up here!

If it gets too cold, tonight then we might have to practice the Aspirin method again!!!

TOO MUCH??? (just say)

I did not start it.

At what point did I become "never happy"?????????

Please tell me?

Forget it. Its not how I work and play.

 PS. OH say will it be so quick and painless nest time?

Dave. where is the pest place to get some free plants from please.

I really would like to rejuvenate this pond.


Unbelievable we are in a nature area but this pond is just about dead.

There is a surface water stream/spring that coming down from the back between the trees on the right and it has been constant for 6 years and not much change. (there is a town river beck behind this pic that floods once a year)  

What can I do to revive this pond.

Its not the sort of pond that gets filled with rubbish so I'm a bit stuck without funds.

Sorry! I'm not asking for cash this is not a charity project, unless I can make it.

I just want my son to see what I did when I was a kid. A bit of frog spawn would be nice but if the water is dead then I'm not sure what to do.

Was there any problem with the tree the_fosters?

If not then just use the soil you have about or compost. Added river sand (for drainage and micro nutrients) if it will help with a drainage problem.
