Good point philippa Pond containers aren't solid like ordinary garden ones. I should have thought of that....
Right Fishy - you'll just have to make that pond bigger love!
Taller, upright plants are needed for dragonflies for exactly that reason Lyn. A few flag iris or dwarf bullrushes will do the job. That pond I mentioned had been so neglected it didn't look like a pond was there. Once we cleared all the debris, there was only a clump of flag iris in it. We added a couple of things, but the dragonflies were using that fro their ladder quite happily I had a clump of Equisetum in a previous pond which was great for them. Not invasive like it's relation - horsetail!
