pond lacking in oxygen

Posted: 10/05/2012 at 19:32

I have an allotment and when I took it over found an old enamel bath which I made into a pond ( I lined it with pond liner as it had a small hole in the base!) I bought a couple of pond plants at a local garden centre and put a few heavy rocks on the base of the pond - my very first attempt at anything like that ! This was 3 years ago and every year since I have had frogs spawn, tadpoles, froglets, water snails ( I don't keep fish). I don't use any fancy pumps and although in the summer I have to clear the weed sometimes, all in all it just looks after itself, the water is always clear as a bell! I love watching the wildlife in it and Im very protective of my frogs! Not bad for a new allotment holder, and a woman at that!!!

my rosemary bush is quite large but I have noticed the ends of alot of the branches are going brown and curling in on themselves. I have looked closely and have found small caterpillars hiding inside of the curled up ends - what are these and what can I do?
