Small Wildlife pond

Well,I would not of put it by a tree because come autumn the leaves go in the pond and stagnates the water unless you put a net over it.It must not have to much sun or a good filter is some times good but I do not use one.Make sure you leave a lip for frogs and toads to be able to climb out and plant oxygenating plants and marginal plants but not to many and with water lilies buy a small leaved one as a bigger variety will take over the pond .Do not have fish if you wish to have wild life in your pond.

I to have just dug up my jerusalem artichokes ,Lovely fried,but  although I dig them up each year  and I never re-place them they keep coming up not complaining but you will have to dig deep to get rid of the tubers.

keep the lawn as a free space for children to play and grow child friendly plants ,you could use pots of herbs and perfumed flowers.you may want to grow plants on the fence to save space.a little patio space with  a sand pit with lid.keep it simple .

mine grow in a fairly shady garden ,they like a lot of water in the flowering period but are prone to frost and the flowers sometimes are lost.
