hi GlenG - thank you for your advice.  I think using someone else's plants from a 'happy' pond is a good idea - I hadn't thought of that .  As the water in my pond seems ok other than the fact there isn't life in it, I will give this a go.  Our garden is not a tidy one ! there is plenty of food for frogs as I have a wooded area and a cottage garden area which attracts slugs etc.  However, don't think today as good day as 3 inches of snow has fallen.  Thanks again.

Hi.  With regards to the plants we think this was a slug problem as found a couple of slugs on the two plants we put in and they had well and truly chewed it.  We did think the plant might come back but to no avail.  The water never had a smell to it.  In fact when I emptyied it I was suprised how clean it was really.  The pond is about 1ft wide by 1/2 ft deep and is a plastic mould bought from a garden centre.

Please can anyone help.  We put a pond in our medium sized garden last summer 2011,  Initially it did have frogs in residence and seemed to be doing quite well with a few plants etc.  However, the plants have died, frogs have moved and we no frog spawn.  I have emptied the water out and re filled with water from our water but.  What plants should I buy to make it healthy. Many thanks.
