I think my goldfish is dying

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.

Bind weed

Posted: 12/05/2013 at 19:13
Oh dear, not a short job ! if you find that the Bindweed is traveling through plants,eg in the border, try putting in some sticks or something for the Bindweed to climb up,then do some homework on a weedkiller that works on the leaves, take care if you use a spray ,don't use if it is windy, you may kill something that you want to keep. This is a job for quite sometime, so keep your cool.

Any dealings with Euphorbia please wear gloves,they have a white fluid,which can cause skin problems.
i usually just tidy the plants up, if you just want the flowers lifted,put a plant support under the flower heads .

Identify a weed please

Until you become more expert at identifing what they are... keep them in an area which you have marked out, so even if you dont know the names, at least they should out number the WEEDS
