Toads

Posted: 10/09/2012 at 21:30

Hi Daintiness, I have to put some netting up as the pond is under two Beech trees. didn't think of that when it was put in place. That area of the garden isn't very tidy at alll. Nature finds it own way

Cheers Flo, I'm very happy to see them especially as they've been seen over the last 12 months. The pond is very much part of the woodland area so there's plently of dark damp and cool conditions.

I have a small pond that was put in over 12 months ago. The toads moved in last September. Since then there have been a few sightings, one time there were two of them. It looked like there were  tadpoles for a while, one larger toad was seen yesterday in the pond.

I'm looking for advice about how to keep and look after these creatures. The pond will have to be netted during the Autumn.

Thanks

Hi kitiekat, fantastic picture, they look like little lizards. I haven't seen a newt and would be delighted to see one in the garden. 

plant suggestions

How about some snapdragons? Can grow a couple of feet high if not even higher- and have a long flowering peroid with regular deadheading. Not fully hardy though

What plant is this please

Keeping cosmos

Cosmos are lovely flowers- I've been growing the Purity ones for the first time this year.

Interesting what you said about the white roots. One of mine got really battered earlier this year and the stem was badly bent- the plant was still alive so I just left it resting on the ground.Just by chance I picked up the stem the other day and there are loads of roots coming out of the stem that was on the ground. So I guess it is possibly to take stem cuttings

Hi ping, I've had these in my garden for the first year. I'm going to let mine die back on there own as they aren't taking up much space.
