Thanks Welshonion- Apologies for the size of the pics. I uploaded them on my ipad and they do seem very small.
i put the watercress in to help clear the water before the starwort arrives this week. It's just free floating. Will the water be ok for wildlife if I remove the cress? It looks murky at the moment but I imagine that new ponds will have a cycle till they are just right?
A friend suggested to me today to put a bucket of canal water into the pond ( i live by a canal) in it to start things off but I'm really not sure about that idea.
I will just play the waiting game I think. Good job work is so busy, it will be good to have a distraction!
