Clay soil drainage issue

Posted: 28/03/2015 at 22:10
Try the good old way of using a fork or shoes with spikes on, then use sand brushed over the fine holes, keep this up for as long as you can.

I have planted mine in a large pot normal soil---planted up right ,take time to find which way is up. I am suprised that J Parkers didnt enclose infomation, you could phone or email them.

Another thing to be careful of is Tap water, full of Chlorine ,a no go with fish, so use a product that takes out the Chlorine.

Why will you be using the same type of pump for a bigger pond as you did on a smaller one and it only lasted a year??

How do you oxygenate the pond???

I think a visit to a garden centre with a fish dept, the staff are very helpful and will give you great advice.

The pond weed is not algae ,It is a plant that gives off Oxygen at night, also somewhere for fish to hide and breed in.

Non flowering penstemons

Posted: 05/08/2013 at 00:48
Penstemons are so much better in the ground, if watered and fed, pruned after flowering, just taking it down to where the flowers end, they should flower well next year, may need staking, brilliant plants.
